|What is AD/HD?|
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is defined as a developmentally inappropriate level of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that is present before the age of seven years.
Ideally, early and accurate detection in conjunction with appropriate treatment of AD/HD, support for the family and interventions/accommodations within the educational and professional systems are critical for an individual. The hyperactive or impulsive behaviours and attention deficit problems are often not in keeping with either the intellectual abilities or the developmental stages of the individual.
