Adult ADHD

ADHD is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a condition that causes people to have trouble paying attention and staying focused. ADHD makes it hard to keep a calm mind and body (hyperactivity) and to think before acting (impulsivity). These problems can make everyday life difficult and interfere with school and work. It can also cause problems in relationships with friends and family.
