Q. I am bit worried that she should not fall within the brackets of ADHD? My only sweet daughter is hyperactive with an extremely high activity level. She is 2 ½ years old. I think she is showing the signs of ADHD but is too early to conclude for her age. Most 2-3 year old kids tend to be hyperactive. I am bit worried that she should not fall within the brackets of ADHD?

A. Hello! Diagnosis of ADHD is complex at this age, and it is extremely difficult to identify even with all the tools available. And smart kids are often the hardest to deal with. Just make a casual visit to your physician to clear your doubt.
