Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can make it hard for a student to sit still, control behavior, and pay attention. These difficulties usually begin before the age of 7 years old. There are three types of ADHD, which are:
Inattentive type, where the person can’t seem to get focused or stay focused on a task or activity;
Hyperactive-impulsive type, where the person is very active and often acts without thinking;
Combined type, where the person is inattentive, impulsive, and too active
