There are three types of attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, or ADHD.  First, the inattentive type, formerly ADD. Your child may seem “spacey,” having a lack of focus and is easily distracted.

Second, there is the hyperactive/impulsive type. These individuals seem to fidget, have trouble remaining still even for short periods of time, and/or act without thinking.

Finally, there is the combined type, the individual has traits of both inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive types. If you are concerned that your child may have ADHD, see your doctor for an appropriate diagnosis and to discuss treatment options.
