Transcript of AD-HD
There are three main types of ADHD, all with different affects on the brain and different symptoms
Combining Hyperactive and Inattentive gives us the most common type of ADHD with a mixture of both symptoms.
ADHD is a very common brain based disorder which is not caused by anything other than genetic components.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
"genetics account for 70 to 80% of the risk, with a mean estimate of 76%" -psychcentral.com
Most studies on candidate genes for ADHD have to do with the dopaminergic neurotransmission system.
Some of the symptoms of Hyperactive ADHD include fidgeting, speaking quickly, squirming, having trouble staying seated, interrupting, running or climbing at inappropriate times, and talking too much.
A few symptoms of inattentive ADHD are not paying attention to detail, being forgetful, not listening, not putting in effort, constantly distracted, misplacing items, being unable to follow instructions and making reckless mistakes.
The process of diagnosing ADHD is very long and complex. There isn't necessarily a test for ADHD. People just need to observe their child's symptoms or their own closely and involve a doctor or other health professional. ADHD looks different in every person, making it difficult to diagnose.
