Recognizing Symptoms of ADHD

When Do Symptoms First Occur?

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder in children, occurring in 3 to 5 percent of school-age children. In general, boys are two to three times more likely to have ADHD than girls. Symptoms usually become evident in preschool or early elementary years. Often the first suspicions of ADHD occur when children begin preschool and have to be in a structured environment for the first time. ADHD tends to affect a child's functioning most strongly in school. In many cases, the teacher is the first to recognize that a child is inattentive or showing signs of this condition.
