Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD is a disorder characterised by behaviours which can be seen as abnormal such as hyperactivity, impulsivity and lack of concentration and attention.
This disorder is usually more common in children aged between 5 and 12 however can emerge before and after these ages. Despite the symptoms being most noticed in children, research has shown that these behaviours can be calmed however are still in existence well into adulthood.
