Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
What is ADHD?
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition often diagnosed in childhood.
Individuals with ADHD may struggle to focus, complete tasks or control their impulses, leading to challenges in their academic, professional and personal lives.
ADHD can continue into adolescence and adulthood, affecting various aspects of an individual’s life, including relationships, self-esteem and overall well-being.

What are the symptoms of ADHD?
ADHD often manifests itself in three ways:
1. Inattention. For example, difficulty focusing on tasks, frequent careless mistakes, trouble organising tasks and activities, avoidance of or reluctance to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort, frequently losing items, easily distracted by extraneous stimuli, or forgetfulness in daily activities.
2. Hyperactivity. For example, fidgeting or tapping hands or feet, an inability to remain seated, running or climbing in inappropriate situations, unable to engage in activities quietly, or excessive talking.
3. Impulsivity. For example, impatience in waiting for one’s turn, interrupting others, or blurting out answers before questions are completed.
How is ADHD treated?
Treating ADHD involves a multimodal approach, combining various strategies to enhance executive functioning skills, emotional regulation and interpersonal communication.
Behavioural interventions, psychoeducation, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) play a pivotal role in teaching individuals self-control, coping skills, and better time management and organisation.
Additionally, medication management, when appropriate, can help regulate brain chemicals associated with attention and impulse control. In cases such as these, medical professionals closely monitor and adjust medication regimens, working in tandem with the therapeutic team.
