Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, called ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder called ADD), is a diagnostic label of children and adults who have significant problems in four main areas:
● problems with attention,
● problems with a lack of impulse control,
● problems with over-activity or motor restlessness, and
● problems of being easily bored.
ADHD is a medical condition, caused by genetic factors that result in certain neurological differences. Those neurological differences might affect one, two, or several areas of the brain, resulting in several different styles or profiles of children and adults with ADD ADHD.
There are three types of profiles: the inattentive type, the impulsive-hyperactive type, or the combined type. ADHD comes in various forms, and no two ADD or ADHD kids or adults are exactly alike.
ADD or ADHD affects about 5% of the population.
