It’s normal for a child to fidget at the dinner table when they don’t want to eat their vegetables, but when a child develops ADHD, fidgeting will be much more noticeable. Does your child run around when instructed to sit? Once sitting, do they squirm and fidget? This symptom is, of course, a hyperactive characteristic. Many children with ADHD simply aren’t happy when they’re inactive. Activities that require both focus and energy can help to mitigate these issues by providing a constructive outlet for the excess energy while also providing a framework to improve the child’s focus.
