ADHD’s basic signs for children with an ADHD are lack of concentration, hyperactivity, and impulsivity causes child children to cope with day to day school challenges (Zentall, 1993). Children with ADHD have trouble sustaining attention to stay on task; this causes them to miss important details on their assignments, distraction during class activities and difficulty organizing assignments. According to doctor (Russell Barkley), he said that “children with ADD/ADHD have the tendency to fall behind about 30 percent, when it comes to their developmental performance.” In fact, the NIH

PSY481U Assignment 2 Theme 1: Learning and Behaviour Disorders Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders “Children with ADHD continue to pose a considerable challenge to their families and society at large” Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder associated with socially disruptive behaviours such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Cantwell (1996) explained that these behaviours may cause significant impairment and interference in numerous areas of a child’s normal development.

For example, an infant may be born prematurely, be exposed to drugs in the womb, or experience maternal deprivation. Children who are delayed developmentally often have low IQs, receive inadequate medical care, suffer from learning disabilities, live in poverty, and may experience trouble within diverse, bilingual cultures.

There are 5 main personal factors that can influence a child’s development, these are:- Health If a child is in poor health then this will have an impact on their development. For example, a child with uncontrolled asthma or cystic fibrosis may not be able to run around and be as active as their peers.

Teenage childbearing is associated with adverse consequences for young mothers and their children, many of which can be attributed to the economically and socially disadvantaged situations in which most adolescent mothers live before becoming pregnant. Often, the disadvantaged backgrounds of young women contribute to poor school performance, weak social skills and low earnings potential, and also increase the likelihood that a young woman will become pregnant as a teen. Teenage childbearing tends to exacerbate the problems of poverty and family instability many young women already face. Early childbearing contributes to lower levels of educational attainment for the adolescent mother and her child, high rates of single parenthood, larger family sizes and increased reliance on public assistance. Connections like these too often are overlooked in efforts to prevent teen pregnancy.
