What is ADHD?

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurological disorder that affects children and leads to excessive movement, impulsivity, and distraction. These effects continue with them until adulthood, although the symptoms may vary from person to person.

Main types:

  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.
