What is Adhd, Aka Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?
"Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological brain disorder that manifests as a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity that is more frequent and severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development. ADHD begins in childhood, and as has only recently been understood, can persist into adulthood as well. While some children outgrow ADHD, about 60% continue to have symptoms into adulthood. The disorder manifests differently in adults as hyperactivity tends to diminish." (adhd, 2007)
I really hope this information debunks the mythical "definitions" of ADHD, aka Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, out there. This information is reliable, fact-based, and referenced. Degrading self-righteous opinions and narrow-minded assumptions are not included in this text.
