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).  

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Combined: They are a little bit busy and a little bit inattentive.
