Why do my child's ADHD symptoms vary?

Your child's symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will vary according to setting and interaction with specific individuals. You have likely noticed this yourself. Around certain people or in specific settings your child may act like an angel, and in other settings the telltale behavioral symptoms emerge with intensity. This means that, unlike a medical disorder, your child's differences are responsive to individuals and environments -- they can be dramatically affected by changing situations and by guidance on how to respond to challenging situations.
