What is ADHD?
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a chronic condition characterized by difficulty maintaining attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. Because of these symptoms, those with ADHD also commonly struggle with low self-esteem and poor academic performance.
ADHD affects millions of children and can continue into adulthood if not addressed. While there is no cure for ADHD, treatment such as medication and behavioral interventions can drastically improve the management of symptoms. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment is important for those who suspect that they may have ADHD.
Types of ADHD
Those who display inattentive behaviors have extreme difficulty focusing and sustaining attention. This can result in careless mistakes in schoolwork and other chores. In addition, they may commonly lose items and forget about their responsibilities.
