Children with ADHD are likely to have poor concentration, be impulsive and often insatiable. They may have speech, language or communication difficulties; social skills are generally an area of concern. Young children with ADHD have difficulty working with others of a similar age.

  • ADHD is a non-discriminatory disorder affecting people of every age, gender, IQ, religious and socio-economic background.
  • Up to 30% of children and 25-40% of adults with ADHD have a co-existing anxiety disorder.
  • Experts claim that up to 70% of those with ADHD will be treated for depression at some point in their lives.
  • ADHD is NOT caused by moral failure, poor parenting, family problems, poor teachers or schools, too much TV, food allergies, or excess sugar.
