Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common mental disorder diagnosed among U.S. children. This condition affects more than 6 million children.
ADHD is most often diagnosed in school-age children. Signs and symptoms typically appear between the ages of 4 and 5 years old, and sometimes earlier. Diagnosing the disorder in very young children is difficult, but doctors, teachers, and psychologists can help parents understand and guide their child's behavior.
Many adults have ADHD and may not know they have it. They confuse symptoms with personality traits, especially considering that some signs of ADD/ADHD may not be present all the time.
