What is ADHD?

ADHD is a Neurodevelopmental Difference that affects people's behaviour, making them restless, impulsive, and unable to concentrate. Symptoms of ADHD are often detected at a young age, and they may become more apparent as a child's circumstances change, such as when they start school. Most instances are discovered when children are between the ages of 6 and 12. Although the symptoms of ADHD normally improve with age, many adults who were diagnosed with the disorder as a child continue to have issues. It tends to improve as you become older, but it can last far into adulthood. Overactivity normally decreases, while impulsivity, poor focus, and risk-taking tend to increase. These can make it difficult to work, learn, and socialise with others. Additional issues, such as sleep and anxiety difficulties, may be present in people with ADHD. Although the specific cause of ADHD is uncertain, it has been demonstrated that the disorder runs in families. One-third of persons with ADHD have at least one parent with similar symptoms, suggesting that genes may play a role. Researchers have discovered several probable changes in the brains of persons with ADHD compared to those who do not have the disorder. There's growing evidence that poor early life events like maternal smoking and other toxins (both before and after birth) can cause genetic changes that make people more vulnerable to acquire illnesses like ADHD.
