What is ADHD

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects both children and adults. Individuals with ADHD typically exhibit persistent patterns of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, which can interfere with their daily activities, academic or occupational performance, and social relationships.


In terms of inattention, individuals with ADHD may struggle to sustain focus on tasks, frequently make careless mistakes, and have difficulty organising activities. Impulsivity manifests as acting without thinking, interrupting others, and struggling to wait their turn. Hyperactivity involves excessive restlessness, fidgeting, and difficulty engaging in quiet activities. It’s important to note that ADHD is a spectrum disorder, and individuals may experience symptoms to varying degrees.
