ADHD / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with attention struggles, hyperactivity, and/or impulsiveness. Children and adults who struggle with ADHD often need help staying on task in school, at work, and in everyday life. ADHD typically begins in childhood and continues into adulthood, and can impact every aspect of life, including school, work, finances, relationships, and more.

A child or adult struggling with ADHD may experience the following signs: disorganization, forgetfulness, talking too much, fidgeting, impulsive behavior, and getting distracted. Before a diagnosis of ADHD is possible, symptoms must be present for at least six months. Kids and adults with ADHD also may find it extremely difficult to focus on tasks they find boring or unpleasant, while being able to maintain extreme focus on other activities they find fun or interesting.

It’s commonly accepted that people with ADHD struggle with weaknesses in executive function, which are the brain skills responsible for, among other things, organization, self-control, time management, attention, planning, and remembering details.
