Lisully RamirezProfessor Hollenback21 November 2019Abnormal PsychologyCase Study #3Examining the case study of 9 year old Eddie, I came to the conclusion that he demonstrates the characteristics of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity of Hyperactivity-Impulsive ADHD. Underactivity in the areas of the brain that are responsible for the control of attention and motor activity. He mainly shows symptoms ofhyperactivity/impulsivity; he often has difficulty remaining seated, fidgets; runs around orclimbs in situations where it is inappropriate and has difficulty waiting his turn. He displays some symptoms of inattention; he can't sustain attention, he doesn't seem to listen to what is being said to him and he strongly dislikes activities that require patience and concentration. His teacher complains that he is so restless that his classmates are unable to concentrate. He is hardly ever in his seat, but roams around the class, talking to other children while they are working.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
