It's certainly possible. Many children, even as young as 5 get diagnosed but you have to consider all the criteria for diagnosis carefully. Ask yourself, could a suspected ADD symptom also be just a normal symptom of childhood/puberty? Absolutely. But it really isn't possible for someone who is not a trained mental health professional to diagnose ADD at that age. A doctor or therapist should be able to identify what are real ADD symptoms and what are merely normal or typical adolescent behaviours. If you suspect your child has ADD, seek professional advice ASAP. There is no point for a child to have to go through that if they don't have to. I was miserable at that age and all throughout high school. My grades suffered, even though my test scores proved again and again that I was gifted...I just couldn't concentrate in class or focus on homework and studying. And you might be surprised by the sheer number and variety of symptoms that can be part and parcel of ADD and related disorders.

What if you can't concentrate you forget things easily and you don't want to do anything mind challenging Is it possible to have add or adhd?

Yes it is possible but there could be other things that could also be to blame, but ADD is the most likely. It would depend on how long you have had this problem. ADD is from birth but if this problem has not been since birth you may have some other type of disorder which could be serious such as stoke or tumor. If this is a recent condition I would advise your seeing a doctor. ADD needs to be diagnosed by a therapist who is familiar with it, this is the way to be certain have ADD or ADHD.
