    Health experts say that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is commonly a behavioral disorder that starts during childhood. However, it does not only affect children - people of all ages can suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Psychiatrists say attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder.

    My motivation for starting Focus Here and Now was to help others who also struggle with

    ADHD, as I have during the course of my entire life. ADHD usually starts at a young age

    but eventually children with ADHD become adults with ADHD and ADHD in adults can

    present a whole other level of challenges.

    An individual with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) finds it much more difficult to focus on something without being distracted. They typically have a greater difficulty in controlling what they may be doing or saying and less able to control how much physical activity is appropriate for a particular situation compared to somebody without ADHD. In other words, a person with ADHD is much more impulsive and restless.

    Health care professionals may use any of the following terms when describing a child (or an adult) who is overactive and has difficulty concentrating - ADD, ADHD, attention deficit, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, hyperkinetic disorder, hyperactivity.

    North Americans commonly use the terms ADD (attention deficit disorder) or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). In the UK hyperkinetic disorder is the official term - however, ADD and ADHD have become widely used.

    ADHD in children is completely different from normal childhood excited and boisterous behavior. Many children, especially very young ones, are inattentive and restless without necessarily being affected by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

    Parenting ADHD children can be very difficult. Fortunately, there are more options available to parents of ADHD children than their used to be. There are now resources, coaching programs, strategies, and tools beyond typical ADHD prescription medications available to parents struggling with their ADHD child.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 4.4 million children aged 4 to 17 have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in the USA by a healthcare professional. As of 2003, two and a half million American children aged 4 to 17 are being treated for ADHD with prescription medications. The CDC adds that in 2003 7.8% of all school-aged American children were reported to have an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder diagnosis by their parent. However, prescription medications are not the only way to treat a child or adult with ADHD.

    Here’s the deal:

    Sometimes ADHD can also be associated with other mental health disorders and/or symptoms. It is more common than you may think for a child or adult struggling with ADHD to also go through other intense emotions and anger. Be sure to read this article about the Intense Emotions and Anger that Can Be Associated with ADHD Symptoms.

    What Causes ADHD?

    Unfortunately, we do not have as direct of an answer to what causes ADHD as we would like to have. There are many potential causes of ADD or ADHD. It is important to understand the definition of ADHD and the symptoms associated with ADHD in order to get to the bottom of a potential cause for the disorder. Understanding ADHD will get us closer to understanding it’s cause.

    Three Types of ADHD

    According to the CDC, there are three types of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They are defined according to which symptoms stand out the most.

    Predominantly Inattentive Type

    The person with ADHD finds it very difficult to organize or finish a task. They find it hard to pay attention to details and find it difficult to follow instructions or conversations.

    Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type

    The person finds it hard to keep still - they fidget and talk a lot. A smaller child may be continually jumping, running or climbing. They are restless and impulsive - interrupting others, grabbing things and speaking at inappropriate times. They have difficulty waiting their turn and find it hard to listen to directions. A person with this type of ADHD will have more injuries and/or accidents than others.

    Combined Type

    A person whose symptoms include all those of 1 and 2, and whose symptoms are equally predominant. In other words, all the symptoms in 1 and 2 stand out equally.

    What are the general signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children?

    ▪ The child is restless, overactive, fidgety

    ▪ The child is constantly chattering

    ▪ The child is continuously interrupting people

    ▪ The child cannot concentrate for long on specific tasks

    ▪ The child is inattentive

    ▪ The child finds it hard to wait his/her turn in play, conversations or standing in line (queue)

    The above signs may be observed in children frequently and usually do not mean the child necessarily has ADHD. It is when these signs become significantly more pronounced in one child, compared to other children of the same age, and when his/her behavior undermines his/her school and social life, that the child may have
