Does Your Child Really Have ADD or ADHD? 4 Tell tale Clues You Must Know About

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADD - The Core Symptoms you need to know about to prevent misdiagnosis -Part 1

This is the first in a series of articles that will discuss the core symptoms of all types of ADD/ADHD. If you've ever wondered if you or a loved one has ADD/ADHD this is one
series of articles you won't want to miss.

There are six different types of ADD according to Daniel G. Amen author of Healing ADD. However there are a few core symptoms that are common to all types of ADD:

1. A short attention span for routine tasks. They can pay attention to things that interest them personally, but boring, routine tasks such as
schoolwork, homework and chores won't hold their attention for very
long.

2. Disorganized - Taking a look at the bedroom, closet and personal possessions of a child and you'll get a good clue as to whether the child suffers from ADD or not. Their closets look like a jumble
sale and you could swear that a bomb has just gone off in their rooms.

3. They don't follow through and complete the tasks they begin.

4. Poor impulse control. A child with ADD will leap now and look later. They live in the moment with no thought for the future.

All of these symptoms exist over a prolonged period of time and often show from an early age, although in some cases the symptoms don't show until the
child starts school.

Despite the type of ADD/ADHD your child has these core symptoms will be present. If your child displays any of these core symptoms there is a strong likelihood that your child has ADD. If
this is the case it is advisable to have your child evaluated by a
competent professional.

Another important thing to do is to educate yourself about ADD and the best way to do that is by reading. Amazon has literally hundreds of books on ADD/ADHD. Choose a few that
appeal to you and start reading.

Articles are also a quick and easy way to learn more about any topic. Some excellent audio articles, slide shows etc. on ADD can be found at http://attention-deficit-disorder-treatments.blogspot.com/

Look out for the next article in this series that will discuss the first of the core symptoms (inability to concentrate) in more detail
