Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a common yet complex neurodevelopmental disorder usually recognised in early childhood. It can have a significant impact on school performance, family relations and social life. Everyone can be hyperactive, impulsive or inattentive some of the time. A child with ADHD has symptoms, most of the time that can seriously affect their everyday life.
