This section includes information to help parents at various stages throughout their child's years of growth and development.  From early childhood through the teen years, parents of children with ADHD face many different challenges. Children with ADHD are often spoken of as "developmentally delayed," and the developmental milestones seen in children without ADHD may be seen later in children with ADHD. 

The CDC's public information campaign, "Learn the Signs. Act Early" can help parents of young children be attentive to what may or may not be a sign of developmental delay or disability. To learn more, watch the video below.
