ADHD2ADHDIntroductionAttention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a problem related to the brain and is manifested by a continuous pattern of inattentive behaviour along with impulsive hyperactivity which is bound to interfere with brain functioning or brain development. There are certain symptoms and traits of this particular disorder that encompass inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The disorder is a common behavioral disorder that usually starts during childhood and it can affect all ages. It is termed as a neurobehavioral developmental disorder to be specific. It has also been claimed that ADHD is much of a genetic disorder that spreads its wings within the brain and a syndrome that has relation with commands of a specific part of the brain functions that are in conjunction with behaviours. It has also been observed that ADHD is a common disorder that renders negative impact on focus, self-control and other interpersonal skills that are very much essential in day-to-day life. ADHD is caused by the differences that occur in brain anatomy and wiring, and it often runs in families and hence, is often considered as hereditary or genetic. In the sphere of education, ADHD plays a disruptive role often and this can be problematic for the learner suffering from the disorder. In this respect it must be said that though schools impart myriads of challenges for kids suffering from this particular problem of ADHD; with an empathetic heart and immense patience to handle the extremities and also with a plan that may work wonders, the educators and school authorities can help a child with ADHD thrive well in the classroom.

Though not all the theories might seem appealing or impressive; every theory has its own importance and the theories are needed to be evaluated to get a complete picture of ADHD as a disorder. The neurological disorder theory of ADHD can be considered as an outcome of the basic probability that whether or not ADHD is really an ailment or rather a disorder. The method by which the evidence is explained is defined by the priorly mentioned assumption to be specific. According to the neurological theory of ADHD, there are patterns that are observed in the brain which are caused by attention deficit, and in this respect it has been suggested that the images that the brain focus on could be actually monitoring a symptom, or the method by which the brain responds to attention scarcity in multitude of patients (ADHD Health, 2017). Lack of interest that bring about boredom and rigid intolerance have been pointed out to be two major reasons of ADD and ADHD behaviours, and these are likely to provide specifically the results that can be observed in brain imaging (ADHD Health, 2017). It should also be noted that “ADHD and ADD are officially categorized as a neurological disorder characterized by hyperactivity, forgetfulness, mood shifts, poor impulse control, and distractibility and is always present from childhood” (ADHD Health, 2017). The neurologicaltheory in terms of neurological pathology considers physiological causes of ADHD. According to this consideration, in the course of learning, it shows a chronic syndrome that isusually caused by anomalous functioning of the brain for which there is hardly any medical cure, but “daily maintenance dosing of stimulant drugs allows the sufferer to lead a normal life” (ADHD Health, 2017). The neurological theory of ADHD also states that whenever an individual suffers from ADHD, the managerial functions of the brain are debilitated. (ADHD Health, 2017). Then we should mention about the “social construct theory of ADHD”. Quite
