Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that often presents during childhood and can persist into adulthood. An individual with ADHD can have problems with inattention, hyperactivity-impulsivity, or a combination of both.
The three subtypes of ADHD include:
- Predominately Inattentive: Difficulty sustaining attention, organizing tasks, and following through on instructions.
- Predominately Hyperactive/Impulsive: Frequent fidgeting, talking excessively, difficulty waiting, and interrupting others.
- Combined Type: Symptoms of hyperactivity and inattentiveness present in the individual.
ADHD often includes challenges with executive functioning, which assists with the ability to plan, organize, focus attention, and manage multiple tasks at once. ADHD symptoms can impact an individual’s performance at school, work, home, and in social settings.
