Your ADHD Guide

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are neurological syndromes, found in children as well as adults. Common ADD and ADHD symptoms include poor concentration and organisational skills, easy distractibility, low tolerance for frustration or boredom, a greater tendency to say or do whatever comes to mind (impulsiveness) and a predilection for situations with high intensity.The name Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder reflects the importance of the inattention/distraction aspect of the disorder as well as the hyperactivity/impulsivity aspect. ADHD diagnosis often occurs in early childhood, unless it is caused by some type of brain injury later in life.
