What Is ADHD? 

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which you may also hear referred to as ADD, is a common developmental condition that impacts executive functioning, attentiveness, focus, impulsivity, and energy. ADHD is classified into one of three main types: inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, or combined. Some individuals with ADHD struggle with executive functioning, and their difficulties may manifest as poor health, emotional and mental health concerns, faltering job performance, difficulty in personal relationships, and struggles in academic settings.

How Is ADHD Diagnosed? 

Diagnosis for ADHD begins with screenings for the common symptoms of this condition. For children, a physician or teacher may be the first to notice these warning signs and recommend assessment. For adults and older children with ADHD, the symptoms may become more obvious over time as they find daily tasks more challenging or exhausting.
