    This thesis deals with coping with children with hyperactivity disorder, within that focuses on family and school. For a child with a hyperactivity disorder life can be very difficult, however, this also depends on people, who are close to him and other, who participate with child. For the best quality form of assistance, it is important that the environment can effectively deal with hyperactivity disorder and their own experiences. The theoretical part is first focusing on hyperactivity disorder and on the description of the primary and secondary symptoms, possible causes, differences between the sexes. In continuing it also deals with families with children with special needs. Within this is important relationship between the parents, siblings and forms of assistance that the children with hyperactivity disorder receive in the family. Last extensive theoretical section refers to the school. School is an important part of a child's life, but above all, in this context, is exposed relationship with their peers, types of aid which a child receives and the legal basis for assistance. Empirical section describes a case study, through which I have tried to explore how family and school face with hyperactivity disorder in a child. More specifically I was interested in how child with hyperactivity disorder affects life in the family and how the experience changed teachers, and counselors in relation to the pupil. To obtain relevant information I used semi-structured interviews. With described process I tried on the basis of one case get a more comprehensive picture, how to deal with hyperactivity disorder in a child. With analyzing the interviews, I found out, that children with hyperactivity disorder often disturb lessons, because he disturb classmates and teacher. For a child with hyperactivity disorder is important, to set him boundaries and to include routine in his life. Child can get effective help when parents and school workers are cooperating.
