Understanding Childhood ADHD and Its Impact

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, more commonly known as ADHD, is a neurodevelopmental condition that surfaces primarily in children, potentially stretching into their adult lives. Characterized by a noticeable pattern of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, ADHD can pose challenges to a child's daily life and their journey towards a fulfilling future.

  • Inattention: A kaleidoscope of challenges including trouble with focusing on tasks, a tendency to drift away when spoken to, a habit of losing things like toys or homework, and difficulties in following through with instructions.
