Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a term for behaviors that include inattentive, impulsive and/or hyperactive symptoms.
ADHD can include inattentive behaviors such as difficulty concentrating or focusing, organizing tasks and completing tasks that take effort, impulsive behaviors such as not thinking before speaking or acting and hyperactive behaviors such as fidgeting, excessive talking, and acting as though they have an internal "motor."
The ADHD Inattentive Type may include signs of difficulty focusing, daydreaming, lack of attention to detail, difficulty following directions, and trouble with organization. Individuals may seem easily distracted or have difficulty following directions.
ADHD Combined Type is the most common and includes both Inattentive and Hyperactive categories of symptoms.
Hyperactive / Impulsive presentation
The ADHD Hyperactive-Impulsive Type may include signs such as fidgeting, not thinking before speaking, interrupting, excessive restlessness or difficulty remaining seated and difficulty waiting turns. Individuals may act as if run by an internal motor.
ADD vs ADHD
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is an outdated term that was used for those with only inattentive symptoms, versus hyperactive symptoms. ADHD is now used with qualifiers of Inattentive, hyperactive, or combined presentations.
