ADHD: Typical Characteristics of The Children
Do you know what a developmental disability is?
It is not possible to judge by appearance whether you have ”attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).”
And there are several types of developmental disabilities.
The following are the basic characteristics common to all developmental disorders:
- Central nervous system dysfunction of the brain
- Symptoms already appear in infancy
- Changes in symptoms due to the environment
Among the many types, “Asperger’s syndrome” is well known as one of ADHD.
In addition, this syndrome is regarded as one of the “pervasive developmental disorders”.
Patients are not good at grasping euphemisms and ironic meanings, and often have trouble communicating with others.
There are other features such as the following.
- Not good at adapting to a new environment
- Intense interest and insistence on certain things
But they look no different than others.
Contrary to their symptoms, their language and reading comprehension are not low.
Rather, if you are interested, some people will get great results.
Asperger’s syndrome has begun to be widely recognized in society, and there are now many ways to improve and treat it.
