What is ADHD?

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
It is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the ability to pay attention, control impulses, and regulate behavior.
People with ADHD may exhibit hyperactive and impulsive behaviors, have trouble sitting still, and find it difficult to focus on tasks for extended periods of time.
There are three types of ADHD: inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, and combined.
Inattentive type involves difficulty paying attention, hyperactive-impulsive type involves impulsive behaviors and hyperactivity, and combined type involves symptoms of both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive types.
ADHD can be diagnosed and treated with medication, therapy, and lifestyle changes.
