Were you looking for information about ADHD? Attention defecit is a common variation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is among the most frequently occurring childhood psychiatric disorders. Its symptoms include not staying focused on a task, having trouble sitting still, and acting without thinking. These symptoms, which usually become evident in preschool or early elementary years, can continue into adolescence and even adulthood. In many cases, the most effective treatments for ADHD include medications and behavioral therapies. However, help and understanding from parents, guidance counselors, and the public education system also play an important role in helping children with ADHD achieve their full potential. Children who have ADHD rarely outgrow it, though some may find adaptive ways to accommodate the disorder as they mature.
