The most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children is ADHD. It is a developmental disorder. Inattention and hyperactivity are the main symptoms of such children though it is difficult to define as it is hard to specify where to draw the line between normal inattention levels and the levels which require expert attention. Autistic children often suffer from this disorder.
