About ADHD

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Research shows that males are three times more likely to get diagnosed with ADHD than females. While ADHD is often diagnosed during childhood, there are plenty of adults getting diagnosed later in life.

There are three types of ADHD, that can change over time.

  • Predominantly Inattentive Presentation: Individuals find it difficult to organize, pay attention to details or follow along with a conversation and/or instructions.
  • Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation: These individuals find it hard to sit still for long, feel restless and have trouble with impulsive behavior.
  • Combined Presentation: Individuals with both types.

Please talk to your family doctor if you have questions about your health. Avoid online quizzes or chat-rooms as a way to get a diagnosis.
