What is ADHD/ADD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a disorder of behavior, which usually starts in childhood, and though, it often improves with time, it may continue into adulthood. In fact, sometimes the condition is first diagnosed in adulthood. ADHD is characterized by inattention and hyperactivity. Some children or adults could have issues with attention only, and they are then classified as having ADD or attention deficit disorder.
Often young children could be overactive and appear to have little ability to focus their attention. The most prominent symptoms in young children are lack of attention in the extreme and being excessively overactive. Having ADHD can mean that a person cannot achieve their full potential in life as it is hard to concentrate adequately at school or work and it has a negative effect on relationships due to impulsive behavior.
