What is ADHD?

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood and leads to hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. These issues frequently persist until adulthood, although the symptoms may vary from person to person.

Main presentations:

  1. Attention Deficit: When the behavior of the person is dominated by lack of attention over hyperactivity and impulsivity. This type mostly affects females more than males.
  2. Hyperactivity & Impulsivity: When the behavior of the person is dominated by excessive movement and impulsivity over a lack of attention. This type affects males more than females.
  3. Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity & Impulsivity: When the above mentioned two types seem to be balanced in expression of the person’s behavior. This type affects both genders equally.
