ADHD & Attention
Learn about the signs of ADHD at different ages, options for treatment, and more.
Children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) find it unusually difficult to concentrate on tasks, to pay attention, to sit still, and to control impulsive behavior. Untreated, the symptoms of ADHD can have a big impact on kids’ lives, causing trouble at school and conflict at home and taking a toll on kids’ self-esteem.
ADHD in the Classroom
ADHD is often discovered when kids are struggling in school. Here you’ll find resources for parents and teachers to support students in school and foster academic success.
Parenting Kids With ADHD
ADHD doesn’t just affect kids in school. It can also cause conflicts with parents, difficulties in activities like sports, and trouble getting along with other kids.
Girls & ADHD
Girls with ADHD are often overlooked because they’re less likely to fit the stereotype. They often have inattentive type ADHD, so they’re not hyperactive, and they may work hard to mask their symptoms.
Stimulant medications are the most common treatment for ADHD, but kids with the disorder also benefit from behavioral therapy, and there are also non-stimulant medications that help relieve symptoms.
