Does my child have ADHD? Take the test! Use our online checklist to find out if your child is affected by this disease.
Many children with AD (H) S also have a reading-spelling or calculating weakness. Their movements are often uncoordinated, they paint and write scrawls. They do not notice the charm of a full bladder. Therefore, sufferers are long bedwetting.
