Is your toddler or preschooler’s hyperactivity normal — or something more? Use this checklist to decode your child’s behavior and to address ADD symptoms before they escalate. Early detection and intervention can make a world of difference in children with ADHD.
When a preschooler is wildly hyperactive or impulsive, parents often feel like they have to “wait and see” if it really is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The truth is that the signs and symptoms of ADHD can already present at a very young age. Medical guidelines today, furthermore, note that children as young as 4 may be diagnosed with ADHD.
