Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a medical condition where children act before they think, have trouble focusing and can’t sit still a lot of the time.

Many children have trouble with some of these things. But in children with ADHD, this behaviour is extreme and has a big impact on children’s daily life.

With ADHD, the different parts of the brain don’t ‘talk’ to each other in a typical way. Because of this, children might have trouble thinking, learning, expressing their feelings or controlling their behaviour as well as other children of the same age.

There are three types of ADHD:

• inattentive type

• hyperactive/impulsive type

• combined type

Children diagnosed with ADHD whose symptoms aren’t managed effectively are at a higher risk of having learning difficulties, depression and anxiety, relationship problems, risky behaviour and injuries. That’s why it’s very important to identify and treat ADHD early.
