Inattentive ADHD symptoms


ADHD, Predominantly Inattentive Subtype

This video describes the Predominantly Inattentive Subtype of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is characterized by symptoms of inattention and/or hyperactivity including impulsivity, fidgeting, irritability, forgetfulness, anxiety, mood swings, limited attention span, trouble focusing, excitability, and boredom. ADHD has three subtypes: Predominantly Inattentive Presentation, Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive Presentation, and Combined Presentation. The Predominantly Inattentive Subtype has nine symptom criteria: failing to pay attention, trouble sustaining attention, does not listen when spoken to directly, does not follow through with instructions, trouble organizing tasks, does not like tasks that require sustained mental effort, losing items needed to complete tasks, easily distracted, and forgetful. Several symptoms need to be present before the age of 12 to qualify for the diagnosis. Clear evidence that the symptoms interfere with functioning is required.
Subtypes are mutually exclusive and jointly (collectively) exhaustive. If an individual has a mental health diagnosis that contains subtypes, they would be assigned one and only one subtype. Only one subtype can ever be assigned (mutually exclusive, having one rules out the others) and one subtype must be assigned (jointly exhaustive, the subtypes cover all of the possible presentations). The term “specify whether” indicates a subtype is required. Specifiers may be mutually exclusive, but are not always. The may also be jointly exhaustive, however, they are not in every case. Specifiers usually provide more information about course (e.g. in remission), severity (e.g. mild, moderate, severe, extreme), or descriptive features (e.g. in a controlled environment). The terms “specify if” or “specify” are used to indicate a specifier may be assigned.

Signs, Symptoms, and Treatment of ADHD in Children

Dr. Dehra Harris, a pediatric psychiatrist with Washington University at St. Louis Children’s Hospital discusses the signs and symptoms in ADHD in children.

Parents often ask me, “Is ADHD overdiagnosed?” That’s a tough question to answer. Many factors affect a child’s attention, making ADHD a complicated diagnosis. We follow standards and strict procedures to assess symptoms of ADHD and accurately diagnose the condition. If you see signs your child Is struggling in school or other aspects of life because of attention, talk to a trusted physician.

When you talk to your pediatrician, it is likely they will recommend involving the school and obtaining classroom assessments. Historically, ADHD has been more commonly diagnosed in boys, largely because boys often present disruptive behaviors that are easy to identify in the classroom. The inattentive type of ADHD is harder to identify in both boys and girls. In these circumstances, the child is more of a daydreamer who is missing concepts in the classroom because he or she is focused on something else.

Many parents are conflicted about whether or not to give their child medication to treat ADHD. Medication is a very personal decision, and there are a few natural remedies you can try before pursuing other options. These include:
- Changing diet by avoiding food dyes and preservatives
- Addressing sleep issues

While natural remedies for children with ADHD can help, they do not always work. When deciding whether to try ADHD medications, remember: these medicines have been used for over 50 years. When used correctly, they are very safe and effective.

If you suspect your child is displaying symptoms of ADHD, talk to your pediatrician. If you have additional concerns, they can help you decide when it’s time to connect with a specialist who works with more complicated cases.

Many people are surprised to learn they have ADD after many years of struggling to stay organised, consistent and punctual. Not all cases are easy to diagnose because many people with ADHD don't display traits of hyperactivity, which can leave many left behind and ruled out. If you suspect you have any of the symptoms, it may be worthwhile getting a psychiatry specialist to examine you for peace of mind.

Adult ADHD in Men Compared to ADHD in Women , ADHD in Adults

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is often characterized by inattentiveness, impulsivity and hyperactivity. While this characterization may be at times true, its basis in public perception belies its truth. To be sure, not all persons with ADHD exhibit the same characteristics, and often times the symptoms display themselves in many different forms.

That men and women exhibit different behavioral signs of ADHD is well documented; statistics show a dramatic dichotomy between the diagnosis rates of adolescent boys and girls with ADHD. The valley between the boys' and girls' rate of diagnosis can largely be attributed to the expectations and gender roles of young males and females. Young males have, to a large extent, been conditioned to question authority and assert their perceived control.

ADHD as an Adult: How is it Different?

In the past everyone used to consider ADHD to be something that only affected children. Many professionals even believed that children who had been diagnosed with ADHD would later grow out of it. We now know that that is completely false, and ADHD is something that will be part of our entire life. ADHD can even present differently in adults versus children, and therefore can go undiagnosed for long periods of time. Here's more info on what ADHD is and how it’s diagnosed.
ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. It is categorized by the number of symptoms one has in both the inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity categories. So let’s talk about inattention first:
A person must have at least 6 of these following symptoms and these symptoms must have persisted for at least 6 months to a degree that is inconsistent with developmental level and that negatively impacts their social or occupational functioning.
1. Often fails to pay attention to detail and makes careless mistakes
2. Has difficulty holding attention in tasks or hobbies
3. Does not seem to listen when spoken to directly...
The second category is hyperactivity and impulsivity, and again they must show at least 6 (5 if they are 17 and older) of the following symptoms. They also note that these symptoms cannot be just because someone is being oppositional or hostile towards someone else.
1. Will often fidget with or taps hands or feet or squirms in their seat.
2. Will often leave their seat during times when remaining seated is expected.
3. Often runs out or climbs in situations where it is inappropriate (in adults this may be limited to feeling restless).. Now let’s get into how it can be different in adults, and why many people are not getting properly diagnosed with ADHD until they are much older. First I think it’s important to know that all adults who are diagnosed with ADHD had it as a child, they just never got a proper diagnosis, and may have struggled in school without support as a result. Which, I have to be honest, is always upsetting for me to read about because children can grow up believing that they are stupid, lazy, or never going to fit in. If they understood what was going on they could have learned tools and techniques to better manage it.
Adults with ADHD may have trouble at work, change jobs frequently, and not feel very fulfilled with their work. They could also tend to smoke cigarettes, abuse alcohol with more frequency, and struggle with other mental health issues (most common are anxiety and depression). There are also reports that adults with ADHD get a lot of speeding tickets, aren’t good at saving money, and over salt their food. They also tend to struggle with relationships and due to their impulsiveness, often get married multiple times. Now obviously as I go through these traits know that everyone is going to be different, but these are some of the signs and symptoms that research over the years has shown.
There are many therapeutic techniques and tools you can use to help you better manage the symptoms. CBT has been the most researched and supported treatment, and here are some of the basic tools people find helpful 1. Setting small goals/tasks each and every day 2. Setting a timer so that you know how long you have to keep doing that thing, and then you get to do something else 3. Have a reward system for yourself where you get something you want (ie. watching that amazing youtube video you saw in your feed) as soon as you complete one task. 4. Establish a routine that you can follow most days 5. Come up with distraction tools and techniques that you can do (ie. doodling while in meetings to keep you focused). 6. Be kind to yourself. Behavioral changes take time and practice, and some days you may just be too tired to do it all. Just keep trying and know that it will get better and easier.
