ADHD is real
ADHD is not a fancy label for naughty children or bad behaviour as a result of poor parenting. All children misbehave sometimes and no parent is perfect.
- Is a real medical condition
- Affects many people throughout the UK, so you are certainly not alone
- Responds well to treatment, so things can be done to help you
As with many medical conditions, we don't know what the exact cause is. But we do know:
- ADHD tends to run in families
- Some parts of the brain of people with ADHD may work differently to other people's brains
