Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Things you need to know about ADHD.

A diagnosis of attention deficit disorder (ADHD) can cause a lot of confusion, especially in parents and caregivers. If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with ADHD, it is important to know what this condition is all about.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a complex condition that affects children, adolescents and adults.

ADHD is a disorder with symptoms that cause problems in several areas of life. These symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior and hyperactivity (over-activity).

The disorder affects about 3 percent of children and teens, and it is estimated that about 2.7 million children between the ages of 4 and 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD in the U.S. alone.

The exact causes are not known, but genetic factors, environmental factors, brain injury, exposure to lead or other toxic substances during pregnancy or development may all contribute to the development of ADHD.

People with ADHD might:

1. Have trouble listening and paying attention.

2. Need lots of reminders to do things.

3. Get distracted easily.

4. Seem absent-minded.

5. Be disorganized and lose things.

6. Not sit still, wait their turn, or be patient.
