Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Attention Deficit Disorder is a disorder that is usually characterized by distractibility, hyperactivity, short attention span and impulsive behavior. It is not a learning disability but can greatly interfere with a child's ability to pay attention and learn in the classroom. If it has been recommended that your child should be evaluated for a possible Attention Deficit Disorder, they should be seen by a qualified professional. This would include any psychologist, neurologist or pediatrician who has experience in testing and treating Attention Deficit Disorders.
