Hyperactivity can be diagnosed after a continuous number of symptoms and signs during a 6 months period of time, try to know as much as you can about the disease (...)
Hyperactivity with attention deficit disorder.
With all due respect ADHD and ADD are disorders (maybe) not diseases and their etiologies are iffy at best. I haven't looked at the literature in a good decade, but when I did, some papers indicated that a majority of children diagnosed with the disorder were misdiagnosed (not surprisingly, often by teachers and school nurses, not doctors). I know little about ergotherapy but it sounds like a less drastic suggestion then the more common answers to ADD and ADHD.
