Signs And Symptoms Of ADHD
ADHD is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that can impact your ability to work. It can also affect your relationships. The tricky part about ADHD is its symptoms vary. There’s no readymade checklist you can refer to.

ADHD In Children
1. Self-focused behavior
Children with ADHD are often unable to recognize other people's emotions and needs. They find it difficult to wait their turn, and may keep interrupting.

2. Emotional turmoil
Children with ADHD have a hard time understanding and controlling their emotions. You might see them having outbursts of anger at inappropriate times.

3. Fidgeting
Can your child sit still? Usually, children with ADHD find it difficult to sit quietly in one place.

4. Unfinished tasks
It’s good when a child shows interest in different activities. But have you paid attention to how long they keep that interest? Children with ADHD take part in a lot of different tasks, but find it difficult to finish them.

5. Lack of focus
Do you feel your child doesn’t pay attention to you when you’re speaking? Children with ADHD find it difficult to pay attention, even when you’re speaking directly to them.

6. Task avoidance
The inability to focus on one task can make your child avoid doing stuff that requires some mental effort. Paying attention in class or doing homework becomes challenging for them.

7. Daydreaming
Dreaming isn’t bad, but daydreaming when you should be doing other things is! There’s a big misconception that children with ADHD are simply loud and hyperactive. While this can be true, some keep quiet.

8. Trouble following instructions
Planning and execution aren’t really strengths for children with ADHD. They generally find it difficult to follow instructions.

9. Disorganized
It can be challenging for a child with ADHD to keep track of the task at hand. You’ll find them struggling with homework, projects, and assignments. They just have trouble prioritizing things.

10. Forgetfulness
Does your child lose their toys often? Are they constantly forgetting important details? Children with ADHD tend to be forgetful. They often turn up at school with unfinished homework. Some even forget to do their chores.
