ATTENTION DEFECIT HYPERATIVE DISORDER
ADHD is a specific neurological disorder.
The basic neurological problem is low activity in the frontal area of the brain that is usually associated with what is called "executive processing," that is organizing, prioritizing and processing information. When this area is not performing well, you are mostly confused with new data to be organized, but your brain is also almost asleep (in brain terms). This means that your brain is like a child who is resenting going to bed and fighting to stay awake, so it is looking from anything to stimulate itself, such as getting angry or excited by anything it can find.
That is the way individuals behave, always looking for stimulating drama. That is the reason they love high-risk activities, such as driving too fast or being reckless in other situations, such as sex and drugs. Another common set of behaviors is being the clown of the class or causing disruption in the class or home, just for the sake of stimulation.

To qualify as symptoms of ADHD, they must also create significant impairment of functioning in school or home.
For an adult to be diagnosed with ADHD, he or she must have had some of these symptoms during childhood.
The symptoms of ADHD fall into two distinct categories: inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. Those whose symptoms are restricted to inattention aren't usually as disruptive and therefore often go undiagnosed.

Symptoms of Inattention:

  • Difficulty sustaining attention, organizing tasks, or setting up tools needed for a task
  • Easily distracted by irrelevant sights and sounds
  • Does not pay attention to detail or follow instructions carefully
  • Makes careless mistakes in schoolwork or other activities
  • Fails to finish schoolwork or other chores
  • Loses things and is forgetful
  • Does not seem to listen when spoken to directly; lethargic, appears to be daydreaming Symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity:
  • Restless, fidgeting with hand or feet or squirming while seated
  • Unable to stay seated or play quietly
  • As small child, may run, jump, or climb about constantly
  • Talks excessively at inappropriate times
  • Blurts out answers before questions are completed
  • Has trouble taking turns or waiting on line
  • Interrupts or intrudes on others; grabs things from people
