Hyperactivity and impulsivity symptoms include fidgeting, often leaving the seat when remaining seated is expected, often running or climbing in situations where it is inappropriate, unable to play or engage in leisure activities quietly, is often “on the go,” talking excessively, blurts out answers, difficulty waiting his/her turn and often interrupts.
