ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a neurodevelopmental disorder, typically first diagnosed when an affected individual is elementary school age.
It is identified by behavior that makes it difficult for affected individuals to function effectively, or mature and develop as other children normally do. In general, people with ADHD behave in ways that show a pattern of:
- Hyperactivity: Extremely high and changeable levels of agitated actions
- Inattentiveness: Distracted, unfocused, unable to complete activities
- Impulsivity: Acts hastily, without thinking of what could happen as a result
While most children and adults may occasionally behave in ways that seem hyperactive, inattentive, and impulsive, it is the intensity and consistency of this sort of behavior that could result in an ADHD diagnosis.
