A brief description on ADHD
What Is ADHD?
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder that impacts the parts of the brain that help us to plan, focus, and execute tasks. ADHD symptoms vary by sub-type — inattentive, hyperactive, or combined — and are often more difficult to diagnose in girls and adults.
According to Neuroscience, clinical research-
ADHD is a developmental impairment of the brain’s self-management system. Both adults and children can be diagnosed with ADHD.
Common ADHD symptoms include:
- lack of focus
- poor time management
- weak impulse control
- exaggerated emotions
- executive disfunction
- ADHD symptoms may vary from person to person.
- Many patients and clinicians describe ADHD as an iceberg, where most symptoms lay hiding under the surface — out of sight but ever present.
What Are the 3 Types of ADHD?
- Primarily hyperactive-impulsive type
- Primarily inattentive type
- Primarily combined type
Primarily Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD
People with primarily hyperactive-impulsive acts “as if driven by a motor” with little impulse control — moving, squirming, and talking even at the most inappropriate times. They are impulsive, impatient, and interrupt others.
Primarily Inattentive ADHD
People with the Primarily inactive ADHD face difficulties in focusing, finishing tasks, and following instructions. They easily get distracted and forget details of daily routines. They may be daydreamers who lose track of homework, cell phones, and conversations with regularity.
Experts believe that many children with the inattentive subtype of ADHD may go undiagnosed because they do not tend to disrupt the learning environment.
Primarily Combined Type ADHD
Individuals with combined-type ADHD display a mixture of all the symptoms outlined above.
