A recent study has shown that the amount of children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has increased significantly over the past decade. This means that almost every teacher will have a child within their classroom with complex health needs. It’s therefore really important for both parents and educational professionals to be aware of the characteristics of these disorders.

It’s firstly important to realise that there are different types of ADHD:

  1. ADHD Combined Type.  Some children and adults with ADHD have significant and chronic problems with both hyperactivity/impulsivity and the inability to stay focused

  1. ADHD Predominantly Inattentive Type.  Sufferers may show no signs of hyperactivity but do significantly struggle with their attention span, and may seem to sit quietly daydreaming

  1. ADHD Predominantly Hyperactive Impulsive Type.  Individuals may still struggle with staying focused however their main problem stems from excessive hyperactivity and impulsivity.

Not only does this disorder present itself in a variety of ethnic groups but it’s also seen in about three times more often in boys than in girls.
