ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that affects school-age children and adults. Children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder have difficulty controlling their behavior in school, social settings, and at home. They also tend to be accident-prone. Most have normal or above-normal intelligence, but may make poor grades. Children with ADHD may have a short attention span, make many mistakes, fail to finish things, or have trouble listening and remembering. They may also be unable to stay seated or play quietly. They may talk or move about too much or when they should not, or have trouble taking turns.

Some people carry ADHD into adulthood—although some develop ways to cope and compensate for the problems, minimizing their weaknesses and making the most of their strengths. Yet the stress resulting from having unusual “hard wiring” in the brain may continue.

The Asclepeion Center treats both children and adults with ADHD.
