Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and/or control impulse behaviors. Those with ADHD may also be restless and constantly active.
Although ADHD is commonly associated with children, it can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Hyperactivity typically fades into the teen years, but problems with inattention, disorganization, and impulse control tend to stick around through adulthood.
There is no cure for ADHD, but symptoms can be effectively managed with proper treatment. Treatments include medication, education/training, therapy, or a personalized combination.
