A diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is not always an easy diagnosis to determine. Some professionals may see the behavior exhibited as something else (anxiety, oppositional).

Children who have the disorder have been shown to exhibit an eye movement that is impaired or distorted when compared to children without ADHD.” click for more
