What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly occuring behavioral disorder in children today. Children with ADHD face challenges with paying attention, impulsive behaviors, excessive activity, or a blend of these issues. 

ADHD can make it hard for a child to thrive and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. With treatment, however, you can manage ADHD and make the most of life. 

ADHD can also affect adults, but the disorder also is about four times more common in kids.

What are the symptoms of ADHD? 

People with ADHD have symptoms of inattentiveness, hyperactivity or impulsivity, or both. 

Inattentive type ADHD


Children with inattentive type ADHD have symptoms like lacking focus in school, being easily distracted, making careless mistakes on schoolwork, being disorganized, losing toys or other objects, and being forgetful.


In adults, the symptoms of inattentive type ADHD often appear mainly at work, with issues like missed deadlines and careless errors. They may also have difficulties at home, such as forgetting to pay bills or failure to attend important events.

Hyperactive/impulsive ADHD


People with hyperactive/impulsive ADHD often experience trouble sitting still. Children may seem inexhaustible, with a constantly revving internal motor. They may fidget frequently, squirm, and run or climb in unsafe places. Children with hyperactive/impulsive ADHD may interrupt others, yell out answers in school, and talk excessively. 


In adults, hyperactivity is less common than impulsivity. Adults with this type of ADHD may be quite impatient, prone to mood swings, and more likely to participate in risky activities like driving too fast. 

Combined ADHD 

Combined ADHD features symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity.
