What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder which primarily affects an individual’s ability to focus, control impulses, and manage their level of activity. It is typically diagnosed in childhood, but its impact can extend into adolescence and adulthood. ADHD is characterised by persistent patterns of:

Inattention in ADHD
Hyperactivity in ADHD
Impulsivity in ADHD

ADHD is not a one-size-fits-all condition

Its symptoms may vary widely between individuals. It is considered a lifelong condition, but with appropriate support and treatment, individuals with ADHD can develop effective coping strategies and lead successful, productive lives.

It is important to note that ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder, and its assessment and diagnosis should be provided by qualified healthcare professionals based on a comprehensive assessment of the individual’s experienced symptoms and their family history.

Appropriate treatment options, which can be discussed with an appropriate health specialist following the assessment, may include behavioural therapy or coaching, ongoing counselling, medication, and psycho-education about the disorder, or a combination of these.
