Ok #1 is chill don't worry bout it right now. I was ADD as a child so I was worried about it when my daughter was born my pediatrician said you really can't tell anything until about age 4. Even then there's nothing to worry about it just means that they learn a little different. Spend time and patients doing little lessons with them at an early age to help them learn the basics bust most of all be patient.

Your child may or may not have ADHD. You can't really diagnose ADHD until about 4. A lot of people say that their 2 year olds are hyper because they are running around. That is not a sign of ADHD that is a sign of a kid. Kids that are hyper tend to calm down when given caffeine and kids that aren't hyper tend to hype up with caffeine.
