ADHD is a broad psychiatric disorder that affects children of normal or near-normal intelligence. It is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and age-inappropriate impulsivity, and it is often accompanied by learning difficulties, behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal problems. On the other hand, hyperactive tendencies in children with ADHD exhibit ADHD-like behaviors such as lack of self-control, inattention, hyperactivity, and emotional impulsivity. However, because their symptoms are less severe, they do not meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD but are ADHD or at risk of developing ADHD. The purpose of this study is to alleviate and reduce children’s hyperactivity symptoms by investigating the current situation of the children studied, and systematically intervening and educating children with ADHD through psychological group intervention. Research data shows that ADHD is most commonly diagnosed in school-age children, and in 70%–80% of children with ADHD, symptoms persist into adolescence and 30% into adulthood. Through the use of group psychological intervention in the experiment, the prevalence rate of children with hyperactivity disorder tendency has been effectively reduced. This shows that group psychological intervention training has a significant effect on improving hyperactivity symptoms in children with ADHD tendency.
