ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurobiological condition that is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Children with ADHD have these symptoms so severely that it interferes with their progress at home, school and in extra-curricular settings. Many parents have concerns or questions about ADHD. A great resource about ADHD is the Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) website www.CHADD.org.
If you have concerns that your child has ADHD, please discuss this with your pediatrician.
