What is ADHD?

ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.  It is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults, although it is often diagnosed in childhood.  ADHD is characterised by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that can interfere with an individual's daily functioning and quality of life depending on their level of impairment.

Medication can be helpful but is only part of a broad management plan that includes as a first step an accurate diagnosis and exclusion of other conditions that require alternate treatment.   An appointment for medical review does not guarantee medication will be prescribed as their are many factors for our doctor to take into account.  Psychology, ADHD coaching and other lifestyle strategies remain important.
