ADHD

ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a complex neurological disorder impacting the parts of the brain that help us plan, focus on, and execute tasks.

People with ADHD have trouble with impulse-control, focusing, and organization. Neuroscience, brain imaging, and clinical research tell us a few important things: ADHD is not a behavior disorder.

ADHD is not a mental illness. ADHD is not a specific learning disability. ADHD is, instead, a developmental impairment of the brain’s self-management system.

Common ADHD symptoms include

  • Inattention
  • Lack of focus
  • Poor time management
  • Weak impulse control
  • Exaggerated emotions
  • Hyperfocus
