What Is ADHD?

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurological disorder in which a child has difficulty focusing on tasks that are not immediately interesting.

Problems with attention, concentration, distractibility and focus are characteristic of children with this disorder. It is often confusing to parents that the child can pay attention to something he or she likes for hours but cannot sit for 10 minutes to do homework; this is typical in children with this disorder.

Current research suggests that this is a disorder of executive functioning; it is important to realize that symptoms of hyperactivity do not have to be present in order for a child to have ADHD.
