What is ADHD?

ADHD is short for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s a chronic condition that makes it harder for a child or teen to focus and learn. It’s usually diagnosed in childhood, but symptoms can continue into adulthood. Here are patterns of behaviors to look out for:

  • Inattentiveness – easily distracted, unorganized and forgetful
  • Hyperactivity – in constant motion, fidgeting or talking too much
  • Impulsivity – trouble taking turns, waiting, or following safety rules, plus interrupting others
