Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
From having difficulty staying focused to displaying uncontrollable behavior or hyperactivity, people affected by ADHD may struggle with their daily routines.
ADHD is one of the most common childhood disorder which affects about 9.0% of American children age 13 to 18 years and about 4.1% of American adults age 18 years and older.
Approximately one fourth of children with ADHD also have an anxiety disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and phobias, among others.
For some adults, the diagnosis of ADHD can allow them to understand problems which they may have faced since childhood and find more effective ways in which to manage them.
