The article deals with the most common mental disorders of children in Ukraine in the context of the current international classification. The role of heredity in the etiology of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is noted. The issue of appropriate family upbringing for the purpose of full inclusion of the child with ADHD is raised. The progress of parents of children with ADHD in the process of family education with the support of non-governmental organizations is analyzed.

Straipsnyje aptariami dažniausiai pasitaikantys vaikų raidos sutrikimai Ukrainoje dabartinės tarptautinės klasifikacijos kontekste. Pažymimas paveldimumo vaidmuo aktyvumo ir dėmesio sutrikimo etiologijoje. Iškeliamas tinkamo šeimos auklėjimo, įtakojančio vaiko, turinčio ADS, visapusišką inkliuziją, klausimas. Analizuojama vaikų, turinčių ADS, tėvų pažanga šeimos ugdymo procese padedant nevyriausybinėms organizacijoms.
