The research will help to explain the behaviour of children suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It will also help in identifying the behaviour patterns of children having ADHD.
It is very important to understand the problems children are facing at home and at school and this research will help parents and teachers identify behaviours that are observed in children diagnosed with ADHD. Teachers and parents are the two people who spend the most time with children so if they are well versed with their understanding of the problem children can be better treated. Behaviour identification is the best way of identification of ADHD in children so this research will help teachers and parents in identifying children diagnosed with ADHD and this can help in early treatment of the disorder.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a development disorder and children suffering from this show hyperactivity with attention problems (Zwi, Ramchandani & Joughin, 2000). Infrequent and impulsive behaviour is also a consequence of ADHD (Biederman, J. 1998). The disorder is generally associated with children because the symptoms are seen when child is 7 to 8 years old but the ADHD also continues to effect people in adulthood.
There are many types of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders. The classification of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is done on the basis of behaviours children elicit when suffering from the disease. In one type of ADHD hyper activity is witnessed in children and it is predominant. In second type of ADHD inattention is the major behaviour shown by the children. In another type of ADHD both impulsive nature of children with lack of attention is observed in children diagnosed with ADHD.
The main causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are unknown but scientists believe that neurological problems and genes are responsible for the ADHD in children (Phillip & Mersch, 2010). Other explanations are also given like
