What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder which means it is associated with the development and functioning of the brain. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, they exhibit impulsive behaviour, and are often restless. It is common for young children to have difficulty focusing on activities or behaving appropriately, but in the case of ADHD the symptoms are severe and can cause difficulty in daily social functioning.
