Brief Answer:
Needs early intervention

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health Care Magic.

You need to take it seriously. Unless you intervene appropriately, irrespective of the physical damage, there can be detrimental effect on the child's development. You need to visit a child psychologist and arrange for a systematic evaluation.

Please answer the following questions at: http://addresources.org/cdc-adhd-symptom-checklist-for-children/ and share the answers with her.

Psychotherapy should help in resolving the problem.

Let me know if there's any further doubts..
