What makes you think your child may have ADHD? If they are showing signs/symptoms, check with your pediatrician. My son was diagnosed at age 3, which is VERY early for this diagnosis. You usually can't get a doctor to diagnose this until around age 5, but the signs were very obvious in my son and we needed the "official" diagnosis to be able to get him into some special programs. If you really think this may be an issue for your child, I would say your pediatrician should be your first stop.
