Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder which affects a person’s capacity to pay attention. Children with ADHD usually have difficulty at school and can also struggle in managing their emotions, such as temper. If not managed properly, it can make it difficult for the child to fit into their social circle.
As a parent, it is best to know what could be the signs of ADHD and monitor your child’s ability to understand lessons at school as well as your child’s social skills, in order to ensure there is no such problem.
Irina Gorelik, a child psychologist at Williamsburg Therapy Group, admits that signs of ADHD can get mixed with other disorders. Which is why she lays down some common signs which should signal you to consult a professional.
