What is ADHD?
Attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder is a biological condition that affects one’s ability to concentrate on everyday activities. This condition is commonly found in children, but can also show up in adults.
ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and is a broad diagnosis that manifests itself through problems with attention, which can take place with or without hyperactivity. There are studies that suggest that about 8% of adults have ADHD that has never been diagnosed. In children, hyperactivity is the biggest indicator of ADHD.
