  • I have one child that has ADD and one that has ADHD. The one with ADHD is really hyper! The one with just ADD just has problems staying focused, and tends to easily get confused. Sometimes the child may seen lost! If you suspect your child has one of these disorders, talk to your doctor. There is much help available. There is also a learning disability that some children with these disorders have. Fortunately, my children don't have that part. They are both on medication which allows them to function properly and productively.

  • There are symptoms. If a child has a certain number of them, then he is said to have it. Be aware, over half of those symptoms are also signs of a visual disorder.
