ADHD is defined as the most common neurodevelopmental disorder. It is characterised by symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and in some cases excessive levels of hyperactivity. ADHD can have lifelong impacts on individuals, their families and society, although with early diagnosis and quality treatment can improve individual outcomes substantially. Caring for those who learn and think differently can take time, energy and additional resources.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), also known as ADD is a complex, lifelong neurodevelopmental condition, which again, can be successfully managed with an individual treatment plan.
Studies demonstrate that ADHD can have negative impacts on virtually every aspect of daily life, social, emotional, academic and work functioning. A person with ADHD may have their life significantly impacted including education, family, social situations, friendships and in the workplace. ADHD is persistent throughout the lifespan although some patterns may change.
