Just not everyday all day like a person with ADHD. This does not only affect the person with the disorder but the people around them. Whether it is your mom and dad, teacher, friends, or siblings. They need to understand that ADHD is a real disability that effects all aspects of a person’s life. “Additionally, there are now brain studies that show that when someone with ADHD is told to “just try harder” and does, the result can be anxiety and a brain that actually starts to shut down it’s primary executive functions (Booth).” For a while now scientists have come up with many different theories about ADHD.
The potential of electronic devices to facilitate students in learning has long been noted by the experts. However, only a few researchers have actually considered using electronic devices for students with learning disability, especially students with ADHD. Thus, ADHD students should use electronic devices because they aid students with ADHD by managing their hyperactivity, which, in turn, improves their concentration, resulting in independent learners. There are two prominent symptoms in ADHD, a lack of concentration and a tendency to be impulsive, which are crucial to be addressed due to the fact that they can disturb the learning process. In contrast to normal students, students with ADHD have underdeveloped frontal brains, which lack of development results in slower brain activity (Cole, 2008, para.
Most people nowadays know about psychological disorders such as ADHD, autism, and asperger syndrome, yet most people have found out by people close to them and yet they do not realize that psychological disorders are a rising issue. In this research project I will explain how ADHD is a rising problem. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty of staying focused and paying attention to a subject, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (over-activity). ADHD is a very serious problem arising in the world among us and most of us do not realize it until it is too late to treat it.
The reviews all seem to share the same topic that ADHD must remain relevant. The medication may not be for every child, but the question of the safety of the children is. What is ADHD? Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder also known as “ADHD”, is a mental disorder which seems to be a very common childhood brain disorder and the disorder continues through adolescence and adulthood. Children with ADHD have a hard time focusing so paying attention becomes unbearable.
The attention span of someone with ADHD is usually shot in a controlled setting they can hardly function, without distractions wich makes them sociably unacceptable. Even though there is a higher prevalence of boys and those with low intelligence diagnosed, others with ADHD are impaired as well.

The current increase in ADHD children seems somewhat suspicious. The possibilitys are endless for the analisys the problem enstated by most is the parents probably never got treated for ADHD and it keeps getting passed through genetics, and people are finding out more about it and finding they show the effects.
Some children diagnosed with the disorder can be quiet and are perceived as daydreamers. It is the daydreamers who can go undiagnosed longer because their symptoms are not as disruptive to the people around them. At a young age, symptoms are already starting to show.

If deficits of time occur at an early age the world view becomes skewed. We all have the ability to process information and make sense of it, however when stages in development hit snags they are decreased or some processes may not exist. Medications are used to help those deficits , but some neural fibers in the cortex the disorder affects most, may not respond at all. The children who are on medication that does help with their deficits have better motor function, but what happens if the dose is skipped?
It would be easier if nobody had to suffer though this horrible disorder, but until they figure that out they do. However people with this disorder can be successfully be treated with a combination of medication and good therapy. A set of good parents helps too. People with bad parents are worse off in life in general. An ADHD child needs a lot of support in the process of growing up in order to be successful in society.
Has anyone ever told your child "This is what you need to be focusing on," or "This is more important than what is outside that window"? If yes is your answer to this question, your child might have with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Children who have ADD or ADHD are often more imaginative and outgoing without their prescribed medication. However, the medication does allow them to focus and decreases their tendency to be troublesome. Naturally, a permanent cure without having to take medication is what most sufferers of ADD would prefer.
