Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a term that describes a number of behavioural symptoms. These that include hyperactivity, inattentiveness and impulsive behaviour. While symptoms of ADHD are often noticed at an early age, many adults are diagnosed with the condition. 

People with ADHD may also have further issues like sleep disorders and anxiety. 

While the exact cause of ADHD is unclear, the condition often runs in families.  Around 2% to 5% of school-aged children may have ADHD. It can occur in people of any intellectual ability, but is more common in people with learning difficulties.

ADHD can be managed successfully with support and medication, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can also help.
