Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or more commonly referred to as ADHD, is a neurobiological disorder that makes it unusually difficult for children to concentrate on tasks, pay attention, or control impulsive behaviors. While some children demonstrate mostly inattentive behaviors and others predominantly hyperactive and impulsive behaviors, the majority of those with ADHD have a combination of both. For children with ADHD, it can often be very difficult to function in the classroom in addition to creating additional stress and conflict at home.
