Introduction:

ADHD is marked by a combination of significant difficulties in: maintaining concentration, focusing on relevant stimuli, paying attention to details, high distractibility, organizational difficulties; forgetfulness and objects loss, etc.
Some children who have ADHD also show characteristics of impulsivity and hyperactivity, such as restlessness, the need to move around, difficulty waiting in line and talking without thinking.
