There are three basic types of ADHD. They are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. (NIMH-ADHD) A child may have one, any combination of two or even all three of these types. If a child has a hard time keeping their mind on one thing or if they get bored easy they have a type of ADHD that is called inattention. If the child has hyperactivity ADHD, they are always moving, can’t sit still, and talk incessantly.
This makes it hard for them to understand how to interact with others because they have no interest in it. Other major characteristics of Schizoid are that they usually do not have strong emotions like anger, joy and sadness. This is because criticism and approval do not affect them since they do not care about how society views them. Which makes it hard for them to have strong emotions. Since there are levels of severity for this disorder, some diagnosed might not have as much isolation from society as others.

¡§ In the early 20th century, American doctors were discussing children who had problems similar to those described by George Fre*censored* Still, who was the first know researcher in Attention Deficit research. The one thing that many of these children had in common, other than their ADD type symptoms, was that they were survivors of the encephalitis epidemic in 1917-1918. Numerous papers described children with ¡§post encephalitic behavior disorder¡¨ as impaired in attention, regulation of activity, and impulse control. Like Still¡¦s patients, these children were also socially disruptive and many had memory problems.¡¨(About.com: 2) At this time, the disorder was not recognized as AD/HD, but was known as ¡§Brain Damaged¡¨ because of the encephalitis. As time passed, other researchers discovered that these children were not brain damaged but had a learning disability.
The section for side effects often comes in technical language and small print, and many people do not read this section at all. People tend to stop reading this section when they encounter difficult chemical names and descriptions. Furthermore, some of these drugs have been prescribed “off label”, which implies that they are being prescribed for age groups and conditions for which they were not officially tested. Aside from these problems, the majority of parents who signed for the informed consent for the medication of their children, were not fully informed about the effects of the medication to their children (O'Dell & Cook, 2004 ). This paper is deemed important since it would provide a comprehensive discussion of the adverse effects of ADHD medication for children.
The bottom line is these students cannot be allowed to fall through the cracks of our educational system. They need positive reinforcement and individual attention so that they are confident in class and productive when they do their work.

There are two types of Attention Deficit Disorder. The most common form is Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The characteristic of this type is hyperactivity, which is seen before the child enters school(Parker 15 ). The less obvious is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), where hyperactivity is not present. The main characteristic of this would be inattentiveness(Parker 15).
