2. Forgetfulness

Another symptom of the inattentive subtype of ADHD is forgetfulness. Again, forgetfulness is a normal part of childhood, but when it becomes excessive, it can be a sign of ADHD. Children who never remember to bring school books home, lose multiple pairs of glasses, or leave their lunch box at school every day may be dealing with something more than simple forgetfulness.
