Certainly the symptoms you are describing are very typical of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). One of the deciding factors is when this behaviour started: for a diagnosis of ADD to be made the symptoms need to be present before 7 years of age. Consulting your GP with your concerns will enable him/her to refer you to a psychologist who can perform neuropsychological assessments to determine whether or not your son has ADD. If this is the diagnosis there are a number of treatment options available. The most common is medication; other options include a change in diet, excercise based programmes or something such as neurofeedback.
