In today's society, ADHD is a diagnosis most parents have heard about, but may or may not know much about. Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, affects approximately 3-5% of children in the U.S. A child with ADHD struggles with organizational skills, socialization, and poor impulse control.

This information was a big help. My oldest child has prety much every symptom in A and B. I guess it is time to take her to the doctor. I have thought she had it for a long time now just did not want her on meds. She is not doing good in school this year so i think it just might work for her.

It's funny, till now in some remote areas of Greece and in the mainland of course the above is what we called a 'devil' little child with a smile on our lips. All these children ended up healthy adults without any issue whatsoever. How ironic the doctors take normal standards for some children label them like this or like that because they don't adapt to what society thinks normal and then feed them medication or pass them through serious counseling that eliminates the pocket of their parents only to end up medicated sustained adults with counceling as something as natural as eating.....society never ends to amaze me. And i am happy this trend has not reached our poorly developed country yet, I hope it never ever does........ So sad......i never did well at school because i was never good at socializing or organizing anything. In fact i think that if i were that age now in the US i'd probably be force fed meds also and fit into the above category. I see myself as having no problems now. I worked till i became a SAHM for many many years, keep a house all by myself and had my own family....thank God my parents didn't consider giving me psycho-drugs in order to do well at school.....LOL.....sorry....anyway....good luck to all the children out there that don't fit the society norms.......'you have a lot to go through'.......

This information was very helpful!! My 7yr old daughter displays all of the symptoms in the 'Inattentive' group!! Before I read this article, we had taken her to the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore today because we wanted to pinpoint where her 'learning disability' is. She is in several IEP classes in school & all they keep saying is, "She is improving". However, we are not seeing it and if she is improving why is she still 'under grade level'!? There is also an evaluation form that was given to her school from Krieger that they failed to fill out or should I say, 'test' my daughter. Since that wasnt done Krieger couldn't complete her intake! However, with what we told them about her, they do want to test her for ADHD!
......I would really like to know if this means my daughter has a learning disability? Will she have to be taught differently throughout her school years or will her learning or symptoms improve? I do not want to put her on any medicines either!!
