Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by abnormal levels of impulsive and hyperactive behaviors which occurs in both children and adults. Symptoms appear around 3- 6 years of age.
Children with ADHD have problems with impulsive or hyperactive behavior, or a combination of both. It is common to have unfocused activity, interruption or inattention, but for children with ADHD, these behaviors are more frequent and severe.
Learn more about the disorder at the American Psychiatric Association and the National Institute of Mental Health. Organizations like Attention Deficit Disorder Association and Children and adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder provide resources to support and manage the disorder, as well as information on the latest research trends.
