Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder that typically falls into two categories: inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. It typically presents itself during childhood, but sometimes shows up later in life when the greater demands of adulthood (such as long-term planning, organization issues and deadlines) begin to challenge someone. ADHD is currently considered a persistent and chronic condition for which no medical cure is available. However, medication and therapy can treat symptoms. Symptoms may include:

  • Distractibility
  • Difficulty with concentration and focus
  • Short term memory loss
  • Procrastination
  • Problems organizing ideas and belongings
  • Tardiness
