AD/HD can be caused by hereditary, brain structure differences and environmental factors.

Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder

AD/HD is displayed as a "persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that is more frequently displayed and severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development” (Turnbull, 2012). The three subtypes are predominately inattentive, predominately hyperactive-impulsive or a combination.

AD/HD is NOT caused by lack of discipline, self-control,too much TV or video games or poor diet.

Inattention SymptomsThe student may daydream, have trouble focusing, struggle to follow instructions, become bored with a task easily, miss details or forget things.

Hyperactivity SymptomsThe student may fidget, squirm, talk nonstop, have trouble sitting, have difficulty doing quiet tasks, or be constantly in motion.

Impulsivity SymptomsThe student may be impatient, blurt out inappropriate comments, act without regard for consequences, or interrupt other's activites or discussions.
