Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Symptoms

http://psychcentral.com/disorders/attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-adhd-symptoms/

The essential feature of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development exhibited by deficits in performance at school, home, and in social relationships. ADHD begins in childhood. The symptoms of inattention and/or hyperactivity need to manifest themselves in a manner and degree which is inconsistent with the child’s current developmental level. That is, the child’s behavior is significantly more inattentive or hyperactive than that of his or her peers of a similar age.
