Undiagnosed ADD / ADHD may lead to problems at home and school and affect your child’s ability to learn and get along with others. The first step in treating ADD / ADHD is getting your child the help they need and recognize the symptoms and signs of ADD / ADHD. If you’re concerned that your child is experiencing symptoms, have a talk with your pediatrician.
