Restless or hyperactive, unruly children, American Psychiatric Association

Several criteria exist for distinguishing truly hyperactive children from those who are simply restless. These criteria are set out by the American Psychiatric Association and concern attention problems just as much as hyperactivity itself.

Note that these criteria simply act as a guide to show you that several factors combined may indicate that your child is hyperactive. Never make a diagnosis yourself without seeking medical advice.

For detailed information, visit the American Psychiatric Association website.
