Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD) is a common childhood disorder that is characterized by symptoms such as
hyperactivity as well as difficulty staying focused, paying attention, and
controlling behavior. It is commonly diagnosed when children are between 3 and 6,
and can continue into adulthood.

The disorder
can mimic anxiety, learning disabilities,
as well as other conditions, and can be hard to diagnose properly. Treatments
include taking medication, going to psychotherapy, receiving training, or a
combination of treatments.

Children and adults who have ADHD or attention
deficit disorder (ADD) face a variety of challenges — as do their caregivers.
It is vital to feel supported by a community of others going through the same
experiences. These blogs offer real life insights that can motivate and
empower.
