“People with ADHD have more thoughts before breakfast than most people have all day.”- Anonymous
The above quote indicates how people with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD) are comparatively more energetic, creative, and spontaneous in their daily lives. For a child with ADHD (or ADD), it can be difficult to get going in the morning and transition from home to school. Also, while in school, a child or adolescent with ADHD (or ADD) can struggle to transition between subjects and activities.
While children with ADHD have multiple strengths that can help them become very successful in the future, there are certain problems associated with the condition that can interfere with several aspects of their lives including home, academic, and social activities.
Most of us find it difficult to sit still, maintain focus, or control impulsive behavior sometimes. However, such problems are way too pervasive and persistent in people having ADHD disorder. ADHD, a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder, is estimated to affect around 11% of school-going children, causing symptoms such as immense hyperactivity and/or incapability to pay adequate attention or maintain focus for extended periods of time.
If such children are not provided with the required care and attention or are left without identification and proper treatment of the problem, it can drastically affect their lives, causing them to fail at school, leading to depression, accidental injuries, anxiety and much more.
