What Is ADHD?

April 20, 2019

children photoAttention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that is characterized by symptoms grouped into three main categories: inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Most children who have ADHD exhibit all three categories of behavior; however, some children with ADHD are hyperactive and impulsive but are able to maintain their attention, while others are inattentive but not hyperactive or impulsive.

Children with ADHD frequently are restless and have trouble focusing on topics when they are bored or when they are distracted by things going on around them. These children often move from one task to another but don’t complete any of these tasks or skip steps in the procedures of tasks. Children with ADHD have difficulty organizing their schoolwork and their time. However, when they are engaged in activities or topics that interest them, and when their learning environment is calm and quiet, children with ADHD are able to concentrate and stay on task.
