Children with ADHD (attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity) have difficulty concentrating and performing complex tasks. This attention deficit is frequently accompanied by neurological hyperactivity.
The main symptoms in children are as follows:
Children with ADHD tend to act or talk before they think. They often lack patience; they do not read the problem statements carefully or listen to the instructions until the end, before embarking on the work required.
Hyperactive children have great difficulty staying physically quiet and/or silent. They do not have much control over themselves and do not easily learn from the mistakes made by their hyperactivity.
Hyperactivity is frequently accompanied by attention deficit.
A person is said to have “high potential” (HP) when he or she has a rate of intellectual development that is significantly higher than the average for his or her age. We also speak of “gifted”. This particularity will influence their lives in all its aspects (academic, social, family and professional).
Dyslexia, dysorthographia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia etc. are not new phenomena and yet it seems that their problems are beginning to worry schools more and more, as they have difficulty finding concrete solutions.
