NINDS Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder Information Page: NINDS (Excerpt)

There are several types of ADHD: a predominantly inattentive subtype, a predominantly hyperactive-impulsive subtype, and a combined subtype. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder Information Page: NINDS)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: NIMH (Excerpt)

NIMH grantees are also trying to determine if there are different varieties of attention deficit. With further study, researchers may find that ADHD actually covers a number of different disorders, each with its own cluster of symptoms and treatment requirements. For example, scientists are exploring whether there are any critical differences between children with ADHD who also have anxiety, depression, or conduct disorders and those who do not. Other researchers are studying slight physical differences that might distinguish one type of ADHD from another. If clusters of differences can be found, scientists can begin to distinguish the treatment each type needs. (Source: excerpt from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: NIMH)
