They can often pay attention if doing something they are interested in but cannot focus if something is boring. A child with ADD will display these symptoms accross situations (home, school, etc.).


Answer by  swanee (202)

Kids with ADD often have trouble concentrating or staying on a task such as homework. They can have a short attention span and seem to hop from one activity to another without finishing things and can almost seem hyperactive. Sometimes these symptoms can be ADD or a lack of discipline regarding how you expect your child to behave.


Answer by  yvonnew (31)

Some key things to look for are hyperactivity, inability to stay focused, and/or making impulsive decisions. All children deal with these issues but if they become common-place it may be a good indicator that testing is in order.
