Signs of ADHD
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, also known as ADHD, is a neurodevelopmental condition that can affect both children and adults. Depending on the individual, ADHD symptoms can vary, however typical symptoms include:
- Inattention which manifests as trouble focusing, being easily distracted, forgetfulness, and trouble finishing activities.
- Fidgeting, restlessness, trouble staying still, oversharing, and a constant need to move around are all signs of hyperactivity.
- Impulsivity which is characterised by the inability to wait one’s time, acting without thinking, and making reckless blunders
It’s crucial to remember that some persons with ADHD may mostly display symptoms of inattention, while others may primarily display signs of hyperactivity and impulsivity. Also, each person’s level of symptom intensity can differ significantly.
These symptoms can significantly affect daily living. Moreover, ADHD can cause issues with relationships, social interactions, and professional and academic success.
