ESPER, Marcos Venicio; POLITA, Naiara Barros; ARAUJO, Jeferson Santos  and  NASCIMENTO, Lucila Castanheira. Sociocultural aspects of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in childhood. Constr. psicopedag. [online]. 2021, vol.30, n.31, pp. 69-81. ISSN 1415-6954.

Through a theoretical-reflective essay, we sought to identify the sociocultural aspects of ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity). In order to explore the different concepts of ADHD and discuss elements capable of favoring their understanding, in the expectation of contributing to better performance of education and health professionals in the management of social and cultural issues. From the concept of mental instability to the modern field of genetics and different cultures, the child who exhibits hyperactive and disturbing behavior is generally a conduct considered unacceptable by adults and health and education professionals, which can compromise diagnosis and treatment. In the light of these considerations, the relevance of always analyzing and reflecting the adult side by imposing rules and limits, and the side of the child experiencing its infant essence is evident.

Keywords : Childhood; Child; ADHD; Culture.
