Most people are aware of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Children. ADHD, as the name suggests is a disorder that presents with problems in Attention along with Hyperactivity and Impulsivity. Common problems observed in childhood with ADHD include-
- Over activity
- Easy distractibility

Whilst some degree of sustaining attention or being hyperactive/impulsive may be normal, the diagnosis of the disorder is made only when the symptoms start causing problems in the functioning of the individual in various domains including home life, social life, occupational life and/or relationship problems.
