Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders in children, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. A child with ADHD has a hard time controlling his or her behavior and paying attention. Parents, teachers, and caregivers may notice symptoms when the child is at home, in child care, at preschool, or during the early school years.
