What is ADHD?
The abbreviations ADD and ADHD come from Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder. Although the symptoms of AD(H)D are present in childhood the condition may also be first recognised in adults.
People who suffer from ADHD and ADD have trouble with planning tasks and activities on a daily basis and struggle with maintaining attention and concentration. These difficulties often cause problems at work, or may have a negative impact on their social or private life. People with ADHD and ADD often experience low self esteem, depression and anxiety in addition to their concentration problems.
Although ADHD and ADD share many symptoms, the difference is that people with ADHD experience hyperactivity and impulsivity in addition to concentration and attention problems, whereas people with ADD do not. People with ADHD often seem more hyperactive, whilst people with ADD seem more dreamy or preoccupied.
