About ADHD & ADD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often persists into adulthood. ADHD is a chronic disorder that can negatively impair many aspects of daily life, including home school, work, and interpersonal relationships.

Because it is a lifespan disorder that impacts so many areas of an individual's daily functioning, ADHD is a serious public health issue.

The National Resource Center has partnered with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health to produce an introduction to ADHD in children. This is available in both English and Spanish.
