Coping with ADHD
Children have lots of energy and can sometimes have difficulty sitting still, paying attention or controlling impulsive behavior. Some children, however, have more difficulty then others and it affects their academic and home life.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting 11% of school-age children (Visser, et al., 2014). For some, symptoms can continue into adulthood in more then 75% of cases (Brown, 2013).
