Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

A medical condition affecting one’s abilities to sit still, focus and pay attention, ADHD is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Renamed “ADHD” in 1994, some people still use the term ADD to describe a type of ADHD that does not involve hyperactivity.

There will also be two ADHD patients in the studio to talk about living with ADHD. Call-in with your questions and comments Monday 2:00 – 3:00 pm.
