Definition of TDAH
TDAH is the Spanish translation for ADHD. ADHD stands for “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,” a syndrome characterized by three main symptoms: inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, although these symptoms are not always present together.
SYNONYMS FOR TDAH
- Hyperkinetic syndrome
- Mild brain dysfunction.
ORIGIN OF TDAH
It is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders, and is usually diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood.
It has three main symptoms. The first is inattention. Children are easily distracted, have difficulty focusing their attention, and concentrating on a task. They may not listen well to instructions or miss important details, and often forget where they left things and daydream frequently.
Hyperactivity is another symptom, although it varies by age. It is known that preschool children are constantly on the move, unable to sit still or stay seated, sometimes not even to listen to a story.
The third symptom is impulsivity, which makes them impatient, often making inappropriate comments or interrupting constantly, clowning around, and the most dangerous thing is that they tend to have more accidents because they do not anticipate the consequences of their actions.
CURIOSITIES OF TDAH
Medical check-ups show that these difficulties are not due to another health problem or a learning disorder.
When ADHD is not treated in children, it becomes more difficult for them to get ahead. This results in depression, oppositional behavior, academic failure, risky behavior, and family conflicts.
An adult can also have ADHD, and it manifests itself through depression, poor work performance, and instability in their relationships.
