Bedwetting is very common with ADHD.

Children who have ADHD usually do most often wet the bed and have bed wetting issues.

However bed wetting can occur even when a child does not have ADHD but it's very common for a child with ADHD to wet the bed.

ADHD presents itself in a child by causing changes in behavior and affecting the child's focus and attention.

Children or a child with ADHD often has trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.

The signs of ADHD in a child include.

Being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings.
Constantly fidgeting.
Being unable to concentrate on tasks.
Excessive physical movement.
Excessive talking.
Being unable to wait their turn.
Acting without thinking.
Interrupting conversations.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder also known as ADHD is a medical condition in which a person with has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control.

ADHD can affect a child at school, at home, and in friendships.

ADHD is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.

ADHD often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood.

It may contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships, and difficulty at school or work.

Symptoms of ADHD include limited attention and hyperactivity.

Treatments for ADHD include medication and talk therapy.

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood.

 It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood.

Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.

ADHD tends to run in families and, in most cases, it's thought the genes you inherit from your parents are a significant factor in developing the condition.

Research shows that parents and siblings of someone with ADHD are more likely to have ADHD themselves.

If you were diagnosed as a child with ADHD, chances are your symptoms have diminished or changed over time.

Hyperactivity tends to wane with age, often changing to an inner restlessness that's not obvious to a casual observer.

To diagnose ADHD, your child should have a full physical exam, including vision and hearing tests.

Also, the FDA has approved the use of the Neuropsychiatric EEG-Based Assessment Aid (NEBA) System, a noninvasive scan that measures theta and beta brain waves.
