Primarily Inattentive Type

This type of AD/HD is often the most difficult to identify and diagnose because the symptoms are not as visible as for the Hyperactive Type.  As a result, children with this type of AD/HD will usually not be identified, diagnosed and treated until between the age of 9 to 12, or later. 

In the case of a gifted child, the debilitating symptoms do not become apparent until the late stages of secondary school or in the first year of university.
