There appear to be three types of problems: simple overactivity, hyperactivity or short attention span and the hyperkinetic child, who lacks any attention capability. The child who is just full of energy needs firm handling and may well grow out of it.

About one in 20 children have a permanent short attention span and cannot concentrate for more th an a few moments on anything. Psychiatrists call this "core attention deficit" and these children are often aggressive, disobedient, bad-tempered and accident prone.

Real hyperactive children number about one in 200. Their minds flit from one thing to another and their attention span is very short. The real test to determine if your child is hyperactive rests on whether they can read a book, watch TV or assemble a constructive toy such as Lego and concentrate long enough to learn from the activity.
