WHAT IS ADHD:
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects people’s behaviour. People with ADHD can seem restless, may have trouble concentrating and may act on impulse.
Symptoms of ADHD tend to be noticed at an early age and may become more noticeable when a child’s circumstances change, such as when they start school.
Most cases are diagnosed when children are 3 to 7 years old, but sometimes it’s diagnosed later in childhood.
Sometimes ADHD was not recognised when someone was a child, and they are diagnosed later as an adult.
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.
People with ADHD may also have additional problems, such as sleep and anxiety disorders.

LIVING WITH ADHD:
Parents of children with ADHD
Looking after a child with ADHD can be challenging, but it’s important to remember that they cannot help their behaviour.
Some day-to-day activities might be more difficult for you and your child, including:
– Getting your child to sleep at night
– Getting ready for school on time
– Listening to and carrying out instructions
– Being organised
– Social occasions
Adults with ADHD
Adults with ADHD may find they have problems with:
– Organisation and time management
– Following instructions
– Focusing and completing tasks
– Coping with stress
– Feeling restless or impatient
– Impulsiveness and risk taking
– Some adults may also have issues with relationships or social interaction.
If you think you or your child may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), speak to a GP.
If you’re worried about your child, it may help to speak to their teachers, before seeing a GP, to find out if they have any concerns about your child’s behaviour.
The GP cannot formally diagnose ADHD, but they can discuss your concerns with you and refer you for a specialist assessment, if necessary.
When you see a GP, they may ask you:
– About your symptoms or those of your child
– When these symptoms started
– Where the symptoms occur – for example, at home, in school, college or university, or at work
– Whether the symptoms affect your or your child’s day-to-day life – for example, if they make socialising difficult
– If there have been any recent significant events in your or your child’s life, such as a death or divorce in the family
– If there’s a family history of ADHD
– About any other problems or symptoms of different health conditions you or your child may have
