Does my child have ADHD?

Underlying Symptoms of ADHD.


Research to date suggests that children (and adults) usually struggle with attention skills because of weak underlying cognitive skills - those brain functions responsible for how well we pay attention, learn, read and remember.

Though symptoms (and clusters of symptoms) of ADHD differs from person to person, these are the symptoms that present most commonly:

  • being easily distracted

  • struggling with inhibitory control

  • taking longer to complete tasks

  • struggling to maintain attention

  • making simple errors

  • not following directions

  • making impulsive decisions

  • avoiding tasks that are complicated

  • difficulty focusing on two tasks simultaneously

  • hyperactivity (in certain cases)

  • focus intensely on things they love for long periods of time (hyperfocus) 


The good news is that attention skills can be strengthened. Without medication.
