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.
