Dear Ronel,

Pardon my English response - I am better able to express myself.

Hyperactivity is simply a description of being more active than the average person (arguments will always be raised on what is average). Hyperactivity as a disorder or syndrome will not exist on it's own but rather as part of ADHD (and some others).

Low muscle tone can be diagnosed by a physiotherapist or chiropractor, who may refer you depending on the cause of the low muscle tone.

I am not familiar with the term "tas sensitief" and therefore cannot comment.

Kind regards,
Delia
