Abstract: ADHD has numerous s_symptoms although the three most identifiable symptoms are impulsivity, hyperactivity and inattention. lmpulsivity (the tendency to act without consideration or judgment), hyperactivity (the tendency to fidget excessively and having a difficulty working quietly) and inattention such as having trouble sustaining and directing attention from class lessons, readings and conversation; having a difficulty completing homework and in class assignments.Children with ADHD may experience significant functional problems, such as academic underachievement, troublesome interpersonal relationship, and poor self-esteem.Teachers are concerned why children become restless and too playful when given a task. Many of these signs may be symptoms of ADHD. Unless a proper diagnosis is made, teachers may continue to manage the situation on their own without success. It is therefore, recommended that pupils who manifested the ADHD symptoms should not be punished or bullied by teachers and peers’ rather behavioural interventions is required during teaching and learning process.
