Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD is a condition that affects both children and adults.
The symptoms of ADHD include difficulty focusing and organizing, forgetfulness, impulsivity and
the inability to finish tasks. Adults may develop additional symptoms such as addiction, difficulties at work, and anxiety or depression. The cause of ADHD is not fully understood.
There are many medications available and they are often very effective at moderating the symptoms thus greatly improving the quality of life for the individual. There are also other approaches to lessen the symptoms such as counselling, natural remedies and diet. Many parents go down this path prior to seeking medication.
