ADHD and Kids
ADHD during childhood
- ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood.
- ADHD symptoms are often first detected when they affect children in school, at home, and/or in social situations.
- Younger and older children may share the same symptoms of ADHD, but the way the symptoms appear may change over time.
As your child matures
By late childhood and early adolescence, some ADHD symptoms may become more subtle and less noticeable. Hyperactivity symptoms such as excessive running and climbing may be less obvious.
Only a trained health care professional can accurately diagnose ADHD.
