Signs that your child may have ADHD
Around age 5, most children have learned how to: pay attention to others, quietly sit still when asked, and not blurt out every thought on their mind. Therefore, by the time children reach school age, those with ADHD often stand out and have problems with managing their inattention, hyperactivity, and impulse control. This episode provides insight on how to recognize the common signs and symptoms of ADHD in your child and debunks popular myths associated with the condition.
Sometimes it can be a challenge to find the bright side of having ADHD, especially when it is commonly viewed in our world as taboo. The “defined” symptoms of ADHD can sound like a list of traits you’d rather avoid. But, these deficits can also be seen as strengths.
