What exactly is child ADHD?

A child with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, not to be confused with ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder) may seem to have an inability sit still. They generally lack social skills, but they may have a high IQ and be very bright. However, they have trouble demonstrating their intelligence since they are unable to concentrate on school work or any type of work that doesn't interest them. ADHD and ADD are often confused with laziness. They are very different things, but may appear similar. I have ADD, and it is not just difficult, but impossible to keep my mind on something that doesn't interest me when I'm not on my medecine. However, when I take my medicine, I become a workaholic. However, I lose my creativity, and it is hard to have fun or have a casual conversation with someone. -DJ Craig
