You hear a lot about hyperactive children, they are nervous, impulsive and restless children who find it difficult to pay attention and reflect on what to do.

However, Little is said about the hypoactive child and yet it is more common than it seems and this disorder is from the ADHD spectrum. His way of being can generate anger, irritability and loss of patience to parents. They are those children who are always self-absorbed, seem disobedient and go in slow motion.

There is probably an overdiagnosis of hyperactive children, assuming that many parents, when their child is nervous, already label him as hyperactive. It gets to such an extent that on our site we have hundreds (and I mean hundreds) of inquiries from moms who say that their 2-year-old son is hyperactive. Yes, certainly creepy.

The child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is relatively easy to diagnose, since his behavior makes the parents suspicious and they quickly go to the pediatrician's office. But, within this spectrum there is also the hypoactive child, the slow cognitive child, what are his symptoms?

- They have attention deficit and difficulty concentrating.

- They seem self-absorbed, as if what was happening around him was not with them.

- They go in slow motion, they process information very slowly.

- They find it difficult to relate to others because their classmates have a different rhythm than theirs.

- They are children who do not give many problems, and even among siblings they can go unnoticed, they do not attract attention.

- They may present school failure, since their diagnosis goes unnoticed and the necessary measures are not taken to help them in time.

- They usually have low self-esteem due to the constant scolding and labels that parents put on them: "you don't know", "you are a disaster", "you are deaf", "you are slow", "you will be clueless!"

You recognize a hypoactive child when you deal with him, and I say this from experience. They are children who seem to go in slow motion constantly. When you ask them for something they stare at you as if you had spoken to them in Chinese, when you are beginning to raise your voice they keep looking at you as if you are still speaking Chinese and when you ask them what you have asked them, they are probably not able to explain. They wear their shirts backwards, they lose things, they don't know what homework they have sent or what the names of all the children in the class are.

It is very common for these children to be subjected to constant anger, yelling and punishment from parents. His way of being despairs and irritates us. And it is that, for those who do not know what a hypoactive child is like, he may seem a neglected, disobedient, foolish, indolent and terribly clueless child. Come on, kids who don't even pay attention to us 10.

"You are always in the clouds", is usually one of the phrases that the parents of these children repeat, accompanied by "you do not find out anything", "but how clumsy". They tend to receive constant reprimands for their delay in doing things and their poor communication with others. That is why they end up having self-esteem problems and saying "it's that I'm stupid."

If you suspect that your child is hypoactive, you should know that the treatment for these children passes first and foremost through a diagnosis by the neurologist or psychologist and after that, the same steps are followed as with a hyperactive child:

- Behavioral treatment for him and the parents, that is, learning to live with a hypoactive child and how to improve his attention.

- School support in case you need it, and they tend to have literacy problems.

- Pharmacological treatment if the neurologist recommends it.

And, above all, a lot of patience, a lot of affection and less etiquette for children.
