What is ADHD?

ADHD is an ongoing neurodevelopmental disorder that commonly develops in children and lasts through adulthood. People with ADHD often struggle with inattention, impulsive behaviors, and organization. While the signs may be subtle, they can interfere with your ability to complete tasks efficiently and stay focused on important activities.

What are the signs of ADHD?

Everybody has difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks, and staying organized from time to time, but these problems are more persistent with ADHD. Your ADHD symptoms may depend on the type you have:


This type of ADHD often involves difficulty paying attention to details, making careless mistakes, and frequently losing things. You may also be forgetful, easily distracted, and have trouble staying on task.


This type can make you restless and fidgety and make it difficult to sit still for long periods. You may also act impulsively without thinking through consequences, interrupt others, and have trouble waiting your turn.


This type involves a combination of inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms. People with combined ADHD may struggle with paying attention, staying organized, and controlling impulsive behaviors.

When does ADHD develop?

ADHD symptoms usually develop before age 12, but they can occur sooner. Many children present symptoms when they start school due to the environment’s increased demand for focus, patience, and organization. However, some people experience subtle ADHD symptoms and don’t realize they have the condition until later in life.
