Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or AD/HD or ADD) is characterized by the co-existence of attention problems and hyperactivity, with each behavior occurring infrequently alone. ADHD is the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children, affecting about 3% to 5% of children globally. While symptoms usually start before seven years of age, many are not diagnosed until later in life and 30% to 50% of those diagnosed in childhood continue to have symptoms into adulthood. Adolescents and adults with ADHD tend to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for some or all of their impairments.
