What is ADHD?

​Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a lifelong condition usually starting in childhood. It is a condition that affects people's behaviour. People with ADHD can seem restless, may have trouble concentrating and may act on impulse. People with ADHD may also have mental health problems, such as sleep issues, depression and anxiety disorders.

Getting Help

If you believe your child has ADHD then you should discuss your concerns with your child's teacher, their school's special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO) or a GP if you think their behaviour may be different from most children their age. You can also speak to a GP if you're an adult and think you may have ADHD, but were not diagnosed with the condition as a child.
