What is ADHD?

ADHD – this abbreviation stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

ADHD: Definition

ADHD is a neurobiological disorder that partly involves changes in the way information is transmitted between neurons in the brain.

Core symptoms are attention disorders, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

Among the causes, both heredity and external influences as well as social environment play an important role.

For a long time, ADHD has been thought of as a typical "childhood disorder," but we now know ADHD can be a huge burden even in adulthood. That's because you don't "outgrow" ADHD.

Important: ADHD does not necessarily mean that you are "ill." Some people suffer few or no symptoms, but for others, the suffering can be enormous. – In this case, a focused course of treatment for ADHD is the right path to take.
