What is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurological condition which was first medically documented in 1901. The characteristics most commonly associated with the condition are poor concentration, hyperactivity and impulsivity. It is a hereditary condition which involves multiple genes. (December 2007, Clinical Excellence Commission, NSW)

Brain imaging of people with ADHD reveals reduced frontal lobe activity. The frontal lobes are involved in planning and organisation, attention, impulse control and the controlling of responses to sensory stimulation. (Healthcommunities.com) 80% of those with ADHD, regardless of IQ, have a specific learning disability – usually in the language area.

ADHD is one of the most common childhood psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. (Pliszka et al, 2007)
