ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological disorder characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of:

  • Inattention (the inability to sustain attention and focus on the task at hand; can be distracted by noises, movements, pictures or one’s own thoughts)
  • Impulsivity (acting or talking without thinking and failure to consider the impact it will have on others; do not learn from past experience)
  • Hyperactivity (an unusual degree of activity including fidgeting, difficulty sitting still and difficulty falling asleep)
