ADHD is very unique from child to child, or even from adult to adult. Some of the main signs are inattentive,, hyperactive, impulsive and disruptive. Just as every person has a unique personality, ADHD can be unique from person to person. Besides the general list above, some children with ADHD will have trouble staying on task or staying focused, doesn't pay attention to details, frequently misplaces things, can appear to not be listening or forgets instructions quickly. If you are concerned your child may have some or most of these symptoms, it is best to call a child psychologist or Psychiatrist to see if ADHD is the reason for these symptoms.

Do not forget- Laziness is not ADHD Boring topics are also a factor in this matter. Should a child have a high IQ, maybe the topic is being dragged along too long and should change, because the child already gets what you are trying to tell it. Otherwise, there is no definite amount. If you think he has ADHD or ADD, get him some meds. Since that is the reason why you are asking this. Remember: Children taking meds for ADD or ADHD typically end up having a form of depression. Go ahead, and buy the meds, though. Glad I could help :)
