Epileptic seizures can cause a child to become drowsy, impairing their attention. Epilepsy can also cause unusual behavior and lead to abnormal perceptions.
Hearing problems such as deafness or glue ear can make it hard for a child to follow instructions and make them appear inattentive.
Reading problems, making it hard to complete tasks or follow instructions.
Obsessive compulsive disorder leads to people following strange rituals that preoccupy their thoughts and distract their attention.
Tourette's syndrome involves repetitive, involuntary jerking movements of the body and sudden outbursts of noise or swearing.
Autism and Asperger's syndrome often lead to difficulties in understanding and using language.
Prolonged periods of insufficient sleep, causing poor concentration.
Some children may be very active or be easily distracted or have difficulty concentrating. If these behaviors are relatively mild, they should not be considered a disorder.
Others difficulties that occurs alongside ADHD
ADHD often occurs alongside other difficulties and is not the sole cause of problem behaviour. Children may exhibit temper tantrums, sleep disorders, and be clumsy. Other behavioural problems that occur with ADHD include:
- confrontational defiant behavior, which occurs in most of these kids. The child loses their temper, argues and refuses to comply with adults and deliberately annoys others.
- conduct disorders occur in at least 25 per cent of children. The child may be destructive or show deceitful behavior such as lying, breaking rules and stealing.
- specific learning difficulties, including dyslexia, occur in 25-30 per cent of children.
- severe clinical depression occurs in about 30 per cent of children.
- anxiety disorders occur in 30 per cent of children.
What causes ADHD?Biological
Temperamental, as this contributes to their attitude and personality.
Twins suggest a genetic link to ADHD. In 80-90 per cent of identical twins where one has ADHD so does the other. Recent research also suggests there is a greater chance of inheriting the condition from male relatives such as grandfathers and uncles.
Brain injuries due to birth trauma or pre-birth problems. The brain structures believed to be linked to the development of ADHD are vulnerable to hypoxia damage during birth. The damage is caused by inadequate oxygen (QI flow) reaching parts of the brain while blood flow is reduced.
Observations to the assessment of a child with possible ADHD. There is no single diagnostic test for ADHD so different sorts of information needs to be gathered, such as the following:
History of symptoms The precise nature of the difficulties, when they were first noticed, in what situations they occur, factors that exacerbate or relieve them.
Risk factors that could predispose the child to ADHD include difficulties and risks in pregnancy and during birth, for example if the mother was in poor health, very young or drank alcohol or smoked or had an extended or complicated labour.
Several medical conditions are known to be associated with ADHD. These include fragile-X syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, G6PD deficiency, phenylketonuria and generalised resistance to thyroid hormone.
Accidents, operations and chronic medical conditions such as epilepsy, asthma and heart, liver and kidney disorders all need to be taken in to account. Also of possible relevance is any medication the child is taking, as well as any adverse reactions they have had to medication in the past.
Past psychiatric history:
Enquiring about any mental health problems the child has had can help rule out depression or anxiety being behind the symptoms.
This means the level of their ability and what specific difficulties they have, how they function within their peer group and get on with teachers, and any behaviour difficulties such as suspensions or exclusions.
The mental and physical health of the child's parents and other family members can be relevant, particularly regarding the incidence of ADHD or depression.
The family's social circumstances, such as housing, poverty, and social support may all have an impact on the child's behaviour.
