About ADHD

ADHD affects children to varying degrees and in different ways, but it can have a serious impact on everyday functioning and relationships. Children with severe ADHD often perform poorly, may have social problems and may suffer from low self-esteem.1

An accurate diagnosis is essential
ADHD can persist into adolescence and adulthood and can be associated with problems such as substance misuse, unemployment, and involvement in crime.1 It is therefore important for children to be diagnosed accurately and for a treatment plan to be put in place.
