ADHD in Children
ADHD can present in children in many different ways. It generally starts to present around 5 or 6 years of age and can be most prevalent around 7 or 8 years old.
Boys are generally diagnosed with the Hyperactive subtype of ADHD and Girls are generally diagnosed with the Inattentive subtype of ADHD which is why they can present quite differently for each gender.
However they can be present in both genders.
Inattentive is the hardest to diagnose in children as they are generally people pleasers, are a "pleasure to teach" in the classroom and will fly under the radar.
Experts believe that many children with the Inattentive subtype of ADHD may go undiagnosed because they do not tend to disrupt the learning environment.
