ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control. ADHD can affect a child at school, at home, and in friendships. However, ADHD is more than just a “childhood disorder”—it occurs across the lifespan and can impact people of all ages.  Research supports that ADHD remains under diagnosed and consequently untreated in adult populations. Although it can also occur in children with ADHD, emotional dysregulation is a core symptom in adults with the disorder, and may correlate to symptom severity.
