What is ADHD?
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), formerly known as attention-deficit disorder (ADD), affects the ability of children and adults to maintain focus, control impulsivity or remain still. Most children who have ADHD can't sit still for long periods, have limited attention spans, or have severe problems functioning at home and school.
