ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders of childhood and can persist through adolescence and into adulthood.
Currently the causes are unknown.
A person with ADHD has a chronic level of inattention, impulsive hyperactivity, or both such that daily functioning is compromised.
A person with ADHD may struggle in important areas of life, such as peer and family relationships, and school or work performance.
The American Psychiatric Association estimates that 3%-7% of children suffer from ADHD. Some studies have estimated higher rates in community samples.
ADHD is diagnosed approximately three times more often in boys than in girls.
Treating ADHD can be done through medical or behavioral therapies, or a combination of the two.
