From time to time, everyone has trouble sitting still, paying attention, or controlling impulsive behavior. For some children and adolescents, however, these behaviors interfere with daily life. This impacts life through work problems, school failure, failed relationships, etc.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by struggles with self-regulation of behavior:
Many children do not “outgrow” ADHD when they reach teenage years. Hyperactive behavior often lessens, but some symptoms may continue into adulthood. Hence, early identification and treatment are extremely important. (Excerpted from Child and Adults with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder [CHADD])
