Reading now: 214

Approximately 8.4 percent of children in the U.S. have ADHD, according to the American Psychiatric Association. Symptoms are often first diagnosed when a child reaches school age and has trouble sitting still for extended periods, disrupts the class by impulsively blurting out answers, experiences frustration or anger with classmates, and/or can’t seem to stay seated.

ADHD symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity can include excessive talking, constant movement, acting as if driven by a motor, and acting without thinking — and to qualify for a diagnosis, a child must demonstrate a majority of ADHD’s symptoms in more than one setting.If you believe your child may show signs of hyperactivity and impulsivity, answer the following ADHD symptom questions and bring the results to your primary care physician for evaluation and discussion.

Only a mental-health professional can tell for sure whether symptoms are severe, frequent, and pervasive enough to suggest a positive ADHD diagnosis.
