Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neuro-developmental disorder characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that interfere with functioning or development. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty focusing, controlling impulses, or remaining still.

Three Examples of ADHD include:

1. Inattention: A child in school frequently makes careless mistakes, struggles to follow detailed instructions, and often loses items needed for tasks. This can lead to academic underachievement and frustration.

2. Hyperactivity: An adult constantly feels restless, often taps their fingers or fidgets, and may have difficulty staying seated during meetings. This can cause disruptions in work and social situations.

3. Impulsivity: A teenager blurts out answers in class without waiting to be called on, interrupts conversations, and makes hasty decisions without considering the consequences. This can lead to social and academic challenges.

ADHD is typically diagnosed through a comprehensive evaluation, including behavioural assessments and medical history. Effective management strategies often involve behavioural therapy, medication management, and lifestyle modifications tailored to individual needs.
