When we talk about ADHD (attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder) we are referring to children and adults, who face serious behavioral and cognitive difficulties in important areas of their lives.
It is a chronic disorder, as 30% to 70% of children with ADHD continue to have difficulties as adults.
In a class of 30 children, at least 1 child has ADHD.
