All kids might seem jumpy or inattentive at times, but, when a child has ADHD, the frequency and intensity of these symptoms are severe enough to impair normal functioning. In order to be diagnosed with ADHD, these symptoms must be present from a young age, be present for more than six months, and occur in more than one setting. ADHD is a neurological issue in which the brain's executive functions are impaired; it is not a term used to justify energetic behavior.
