What are the signs of a hyperactive child?


Hyperactivity is a common symptom in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Here are some signs of hyperactivity in children:

  1. Constant fidgeting or restlessness
  2. Inability to stay seated or stay still
  3. Excessive talking
  4. Difficulty playing quietly or engaging in calm activities
  5. Running, climbing, or jumping excessively
  6. Interrupting or intruding on others
  7. Difficulty waiting for turns or following instructions
  8. Difficulty engaging in activities that require sustained mental effort

It is important to note that some level of activity and energy is normal in children, and hyperactivity should only be considered a concern if it is persistent and interfering with the child’s ability to function in daily life. If you are concerned about your child’s behavior, it is recommended to speak with a healthcare professional for an evaluation.
