Is it ADHD or Sleep Apnea?

Many a times I see parents who have a hyperactive child and worse they would have put the child in a special school or even taken the child to a child psychologist. What majority forget is that Adenoidal swelling mimics Attention Deficit Disorder.

One of the thing every parent should note is how their child breathes at night.
If in doubt take the child to a specialist who also specializes in paediatric ENT and paediatric sleep apnea disorders, its much easier to rule out Adenoid as the cause but the negative impact on the child once branded ADHD is too huge a price to pay.
