Attention Deficit-hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Preschool

Nur Faizah Romadona

Abstract

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder is now known as a lifetime developmental disorder. The symptoms vary, depending on the age of the affected children. Preschool age children with symptoms of Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are at risk from rejection by their peers and expulsion from the school setting due to disruptive and noncompliance behavior. Removal from preschool will limit a child’s exposure to preacademic instruction and socialization. Despite the diagnosing difficulties, it has been estimated that 2% of the preschool age children suffer from ADHD. Knowledge about ADHD is a necessity for both parents and teachers in instruction for them to be able to deal with preschool age children with ADHD symptoms. Without early intervention, the symptom will remain and often escalate at the school-age. The early interventions include medications, parent-training, behavior-management interventions, and combination interventions.
