Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.
ADHD is a common behavioural disorder in Australia. It is estimated the condition affects 2-5% of school-aged children and young people. ADHD can be a lifelong condition, and many children continue to have symptoms as teenagers and adults.
It is important to know that all ADHD children are different, just the same as non-ADHD children are all unique.
