Attention Deficit Disorder is a disorder that leads to extreme restlessness, urge to move, inattention, impulsivity, and behavioral problems. Children as well as adults have an exhausting nature due to the disease itself. They keep coming up with that, especially at school they are dancing out of line. They get distracted quickly, talk a lot, do their jobs very slowly and move a lot. Some are more intelligent than average and still have a lot of problems with the subject matter. Not all symptoms of ADHD do not always affect the affected person equally, some symptoms are not pronounced in some cases. However, sufferers suffer, they find it very difficult to make friends, they keep getting into trouble with their teachers, educators and parents and usually have to look for a job longer than others. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and its typesDistinguish three groups of ADHD:
Predominantly: impulsive-hyperactive Predominantly: attention-disturbed, often dreamy (often in girls) -> also known as ADD. Those affected cannot concentrate well, have difficulties in class and homework, are inattentive but not hyperactive.
Why some suffer from ADHD and others do not, has not yet been clarified. However, it has been proven that genes play an important role in the cause. For example, the risk of ADHD is higher for boys if a parent is already suffering from the disorder. If ADHD has been detected in the child, relatives, parents or siblings often also suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, malfunctions in the brain can also be responsible for a disease. Information processing between different brain regions does not work properly, information is only partially shared. The messenger’s norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin are said to affect the symptoms of ADHD. These provide drive, motivation and attention. Another cause is the inadequate filtering of information in the brain, children with ADHD are overwhelmed with the amount of information that comes in their lives on a daily basis and cannot distinguish important from unimportant information. Lack of oxygen during childbirth and the influence of nicotine, drugs and alcohol during pregnancy promote the risk of infancy of ADHD. But also external circumstances, how a child grows up, play a role. These include little affection and love, lack of exercise, constant argument between the parents, noise, cramped living space, high TV and console consumption, time pressure and missing structures that only exacerbate the disturbance.
Sometimes the symptoms of the disease fade over the years, at about 60% they stay a lifetime. If the disease has been diagnosed, ADHD should definitely be treated. Always think about the welfare of your child and help him / her. An untreated illness has an extreme effect on all areas of life, be it in childhood, adolescence or adulthood.
