ADHD Overview

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common neurobehavioral disorder in children, estimated to affects between 4% and 12% of all school-aged children.

 

The chief features of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, and this disorder is often associated with substantial impairments, including low self-esteem, poor family and peer relationships, school difficulties, and academic underachievement.

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that a diagnosis of ADHD be established based on the following core criteria as defined by the American Psychiatric Association in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV).
