Conditions Mistaken for ADHD
At times, everyone has problems with staying focused. People also can act impulsively or be hyperactive. People with ADHD struggle to control these behaviors on a regular basis.
ADHD vs. Learning Disabilities
Individuals with learning disabilities may seem inattentive at school and disorganized. However, they may have problems processing information as quickly as others or have a reading disorder and may stop trying to “catch up.” People with ADHD often struggle in school but their problem is related to focus and organization, not necessarily just processing delays.
