Attention Defcite Disorder
Were you looking for information about ADHD? Attention defcite disorder is a common variation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is one of the most frequently occurring childhood psychiatric disorders. Its symptoms include not staying focused on a task, having trouble sitting still, and acting without thinking. In general, children with ADHD find it difficult to finish any project or activity they begin. These symptoms usually become evident in preschool or early elementary years and can continue into adolescence and even adulthood. If left untreated, ADHD can have long-term effects on a child's ability to make friends or do well at school work. There are several types of ADHD, such as the predominantly inattentive type, the predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type, and the combined type. There is no "cure" for ADHD. Children who have ADHD rarely outgrow it, though some may find adaptive ways to accommodate the disorder as they mature.
