Welcome to the forums, vegimum! :)

I'm glad you're finding good information here. A really good book for understanding all of this in kids is Russell Barkley's Taking Charge of Attention Deficit Disorder. I also like all the books by Hallowell and Ratey -- Driven to Distraction, Answers to Distraction, and Delivered from Distraction.

Take care,
