Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder

What is Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder?

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common disorders of childhood. The disorder nearly always begins in early childhood. Children may have inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity. Treatment of the disorder can involve medication, educational management, and psychological management. One or more of these interventions will result in improvement in about 80% of children with ADHD. The book Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder provides management suggestions for parents and teachers.
