Is your child under 4 years old?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

Young children are normally very active. However, a child who is excessively restless, impulsive, and unable to concentrate may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Children with ADHD (usually boys) may be destructive, irritable, and aggressive and may also have difficulty making friends. Such behaviour is very hard to deal with and requires patience and understanding. Children with ADHD often have low self-esteem because of frequent scolding or criticism.

If you suspect that your child may have ADHD, consult your doctor, who will assess your child's behaviour and may refer him or her to a child psychologist, child psychiatrist, or paediatrician. You may be taught various techniques to improve your child's behaviour, and your child may be given drugs that will help calm him or her. Your child may also benefit from being taught in small groups. Although the disorder often continues through adolescence, behavioural problems may become less severe if the treatment is started early enough.
