Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is medical condition that makes it hard for children and adolescents to pay attention, stay focused and control their behaviors. ADHD can influence a child’s ability to organize and remember things. Often, children and adolescents with ADHD feel restless, lost, overloaded with information or impatient, like it’s hard to wait. They might also feel more singled out by teachers or parents, or unpopular among peers. These behaviors and feelings can make it challenging for children and adolescents to function well at school and home, as well as get along with other kids.
