Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that first appears in childhood. It’s most commonly identified in the preschool and early school years.

The most common signs of ADHD in children are difficulty paying attention, impulsive behaviour and over-activity. Getting help early is important for children with ADHD to reduce related problems later in life, such as poor self-esteem and under-achievement.
