Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: diagnosis and managementADHD is a condition that affects people’s behaviour. It can make them seem restless or hyperactive, have trouble remembering things and focusing on tasks, and they may often act on impulse without stopping to think. It is usually spotted in childhood but some people are not diagnosed until they are adults. It can affect people throughout their lives, disrupting relationships and making everyday life difficult.
