The root problem could be due to a problem with both eyes working together, or changing focus rapidly, or maintaining sustained focus, or smooth visual tracking of the eyes.

ADHD is a behavior disorder that some children have where they are hyperactive and have difficulty paying attention. Many children who have ADHD have very similar symptoms as Auditory Processing Disorder or Visual Processing Disorder. The proper diagnosis is critical to remediation.
If your child has been diagnosed as ADD or ADHD and you have tried medication and the child has not significantly improved, I would recommend having an Auditory & Visual Processing Screening to rule out processing disorders.
