Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with a person’s functioning or development. In adults, this can lead to unstable relationships, poor academic performance and job performance, low self-esteem, and other struggles. Symptoms start in early childhood and can continue into adulthood. There are three subtypes of ADHD: Predominantly Inattentive Presentation, Predominantly Hyperactive, and Combined Presentation.
