Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that begins in childhood, but it can continue throughout the lifetime (National Institute of Mental Health, 2008). It can be linked to a genetic disorder that can occur in families.
There are three different subtypes of ADHD: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, or a combination of inattention and hyperactivity. There can be several different kinds of symptoms that are seen in ADHD.
