Inattentive ADD, but the hyperactivity is now an issue
My daughter was diagnosed with Inattentive ADD, but this past five months or so I’m almost certain she has the ADHD (the hyper) part of it. She has a hard time sitting still, tells me she has to much energy and needs to get her energy out….this has been an awful winter in Iowa, couped up with the weather, and she really never seems to be happy unless she is outdoors. I’m not sure how to deal with this new found energy and fidgetiness. Is it possible to get the hyper part of the ADD or do you think it’s just her not getting adequate amounts of exercise that she needs?
