Great video. I think the youngest age of diagnosis is 7ish though. Before then, especially with boys, it could be just normal behaviour (lack of ability to sit still, to listen, to focus, etc).

My friend's son was diagnosed at 3 - which seemed odd to me.

This is also a great video (by Dr. James Varga) on diagnosing ADHD:
