ADHD refers to a family of related chronic neurobiological disorders that interfere with an individual's capacity to regulate activity level (hyperactivity), inhibit behavior (impulsivity), and attend to tasks (inattention) in developmentally appropriate ways. The core symptoms of ADHD include an inability to sustain attention and concentration, developmentally inappropriate levels of activity, distractibility, and impulsivity.
Children with ADHD have functional impairment across multiple settings including home, school, and peer relationships. ADHD has also been shown to have long-term adverse effects on academic performance, vocational success, and social-emotional development. Children with ADHD experience an inability to sit still and pay attention in class and the negative consequences of such behavior. For many individuals, the impact of ADHD continues into adulthood.
Do you have a child between the ages of 13 and 17 that has trouble paying attention? Has trouble sitting still or keeping their mind on what they’re doing? Are careless mistakes a common problem? Do they often feel disorganized, and now it’s affecting their school and life? If so, they may be suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, also known as ADHD.
