In brief: Also Organization

Dr. Auerbach's answer is very good.
In addition, add/adhd kids have difficulty in organizational skills.This appears with planning study time, writing reports where the information/facts need to organized etc.

In brief: Focus.impulsv.hyper

Adhd: symptoms including attention deficit (inability to maintain focus), impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity.
Symptoms are typical and normal for 4 year olds, but start affecting all aspects of life (academic, social, family, athletic) when they persist beyond. Vanderbilt forms help objectively. Behavior modification, school involvement, and mainly stimulant medication are used as treatment.
