According to the Mayo Clinic:

“Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that affects millions of children and often persists into adulthood.  ADHD includes a combination of problems, such as difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.

Children with ADHD also may struggle with low self-esteem, troubled relationships, and poor performance in school.  Symptoms sometimes lessen with age; however, some people never completely outgrow their ADHD symptoms but they can learn strategies to be successful.

While treatment won’t cure ADHD, it can help a great deal with symptoms.  Treatment typically involves medications and behavioral interventions.  Early diagnosis and treatment can make a big difference in outcome.”
