Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioural disorder that includes symptoms such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.
Symptoms tend to be noticed at an early age but most cases are diagnosed when children are between 6 and 12 years old.
The symptoms of ADHD usually improve with age, but many adults who were diagnosed with the condition at a young age continue to experience problems.
This course gives a better understanding of ADHD and support strategies for children and young people.
