Many parents ask me, “Could my child have ADHD?”. In order to answer that question, we need to consider the different types of ADHD. There are 3 main types of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
- Inattentive: These are our daydreamers. They miss the assignment because they are looking out the window, lost in their own world. Often these children are not diagnosed, as they aren’t a “problem” in class.
- Hyperactive: These are our energizer bunnies. They can’t sit still. It’s hard to learn if you are unable to focus and pay attention.
- Combined: They are a little bit busy and a little bit inattentive.
