Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity that interferes with functioning or development. Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized and setting goals. They may also have problems with relationships, self-esteem and addiction. ADHD symptoms can occur as early as the ages of 3 and 6 and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Children with ADHD often exhibit symptoms of behavioral disruption, fidgetiness, lack of focus, interrupting, emotional turmoil, daydreaming and trouble getting organized. Seeing a mental health professional can help people with ADHD make a dramatic difference in one’s symptoms including developing healthy coping skills and improving one’s performance and interpersonal relationships.
