From the Just for Kids section:

Lots of kids (and some grownups, too) have trouble paying attention because it's hard for them to sit still and listen.
  • Do you ever feel as if your motor is running, even when you're sitting still?
  • Do you feel like wiggling and fidgeting when you have to sit and listen to your teacher?
  • Do you talk a lot and have trouble being quiet in class?
  • Do you forget to raise your hand and wait for the teacher to call on you?
  • Is it hard to wait your turn?
  • Do you play around and bump into other kids when you're waiting in line?

If you answer yes to lots of these questions, you have a lot of energy And having so much energy can make it hard to settle down and pay attention in school.
