It is estimated that over two million children and adults in the US suffer with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), also called Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Symptoms in children that are of concern to parents and teachers include an inability to focus or pay attention in school, being easily distracted from tasks, and impulsivity and hyperactivity beyond what is normal for children of the same age. These symptoms are of concern because they can lead to poor academic and family functioning
Symptoms are often less evident in adults, yet they do exist and they can coincide with symptoms of anxiety, depressions, substance abuse, low self-esteem, as well as work and relationship problems.
