ADHD or Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, (abbreviated as ADHD or sometimes just ADD) affects mostly children but also some adults.

ADHD involves symptoms including inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive behaviour. These symptoms are associated with learning, behavioural and emotional problems.

Types of ADHD

There are 3 types of ADHD:

  • Inattentive means a person is easily distractible or inattentive but isn’t hyperactive or impulsive.
  • Hyperactive-Impulsive occurs when a person has symptoms of impulsivity and hyperactivity.
  • Combined ADHD is where a person has a mixture of symptoms including hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity.

Treatment for ADHD

Everyone gets restless and distracted from time to time. But for people with ADHD it can be extremely hard to stay focused on a task. The good news is that ADHD is treatable. Psychologicaland behaviour therapies and medicine can all be effective. For children, positive parenting techniques are also recommended.
