Essay on What Are the 9 Symptoms of ADHD – Primarily Hyperactive-Impulsive Type?
The need for continuous motion is felt by people with hyperactive ADHD. Often, they fidget, squirm and try to remain seated. Kids also tend to behave as though they are “powered by an engine” and run around excessively.
- Fidgets also have hands or feet, or squirms in the seat, or clicks.
- It also leaves a seat in circumstances where it is required to remain seated (e.g., it leaves its position in the classroom, in the hospital or other job, or in other situations requiring it to remain in place).
- In cases where it is unacceptable, it is mostly racing around or jumping. (Note: It can be limited to becoming restless in teens or adults.)
- They are also reluctant to play or peacefully engage in recreational activities.
- It is always “on the move,” behaving as if it is “driven by a motor” (for example, it is unable or painful to be still for a long time, as in restaurants, meetings; others can perceive it as impatient or difficult to keep up with it).
- Before a question is completed, an answer is always blurted out (e.g., completes the sentences of people; does not wait for a conversational turn).
- It’s also difficult to wait for his or her turn (for example, when standing in line).
- Sometimes delays or intrudes on others (e.g., butts in discussions, sports, or activities; may continue to use the stuff of other people without asking or obtaining permission; may intrude or take over what others do for teens and adults).
