Transcript of ADD/ADHD

By: Caleb Cioffi A Little Bit About ADD/ADHD ADHD Is known as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder People with ADHD typically have trouble getting organized, staying focused, making realistic plans and thinking before acting. They may be fidgety, noisy and unable to adapt to changing situations. The Signs and Symptoms Any Signs or Symptoms of ADD/ADHD usually appear before the age of 7. 1 way you can tell if your kid has ADD/ADHD or is just being a normal hyperactive kid is by observing his/her's behavior in and out of school if you notice a couple symptoms it's likley your child doesnt have it. if you notice close to all you should get them checked for ADD/ADHD. All you should be looking for is forgetfullness and having trouble paying attention those are the major symptoms and signs of this disorder. A child with ADD/ADHD is extremely creative they can be daydreaming and have 10 thoughts at once. they may be hyper and forgetful but they can have great ideas through this that's why ADD/ADHD kids are normally good artists or good with numbers. The Creativity of ADD/ADHD Because children with ADD/ADHD can't always stay on 1 topic they are usually more open to different ideas. If an ADD/ADHD child finds something they like to do (Which is usually is something Hands-on or Interactive) it would be very hard to distract them away from it. Flexibility and Energy By Caleb Cioffi ADD/ADHD Stereotypes The Stereotype of an ADD/ADHD child is a hyperactive little boy. The truth is, girls can get ADD/ADHD too. When girls have ADD/ADHD they tend to be less hyperactive and more attention deficit. There are less heard of girls with this disorder because their symptoms differ and no one thinks of ADD/ADHD with a girl most people miss it. ADD/ADHD Statistics # Approximately 9.5% or 5.4 million children 4-17 years of age have ever been diagnosed with ADHD, as of 2007.

# The percentage of children with a parent-reported ADHD diagnosis increased by 22% between 2003 and 2007.
