Dear amai T,
ADHD stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. In brief, it is a difficulty to concentrate on the task at hand as equal attention is given to all stimuli around the person. This means they are unable to/find it difficult to block out the sights and sounds around them and focus on just the work on the desk. Hyperactivity refers to inappropriate levels of activity or an inability to sit still. Hyperactivity is not always present. For more information please visit www.adhasa.co.za.
