Varity’s of Attention Deficit Disorder Manifestation In teenagers and kids
The hyperactive, rebellious boys are easy to spot, there are also several other types of children that suffer from ADD that go undiagnosed because of their less conspicuous behavior. A mostly girl falls in this category
Another often undiagnosed group of ADD children are the "chatty" girls. This type is a combination of inattentiveness and hyperactivity and is typically exhibited as being extremely social. More hyper-talkative than hyperactive, these girls have a very difficult time keeping quiet even after being disciplined for talking.
Interestingly enough, there are also a lot of "gifted" girls with ADD. High IQ levels may make it easier to cope with inattention and impulsiveness, but as a child ages, their shortcomings often emerge.
