ADHD Symptom: Distractibility
Distractibility is sometimes confused with inattention. But there’s a difference between not being focused on a task (inattention) and getting distracted by information your brain struggles to filter out (distractibility). With ADHD, anything kids see, hear or feel—such as an itch—could distract them. This can make them lose focus on the conversation they’re having or the task they’re supposed to be completing.
