Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder is often thought of as a childhood disorder. Often ADHD conjures up pictures of young people who have excessive energy and cannot focus. Children are typically diagnosed with ADHD, but many adults are affected by ADHD/ADD as well. Hyperactivity is not the only type of attention deficit difficulty. Many people experience inattention which looks very different.
