Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
 
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) (a physicians manual for diagnosis), the symptoms of ADHD fall into the following categories: inattention, hyperactivity/impulsivity, and a combination of the two.

ADHD is a common neuro-behavioural disorder that has been related to the brain’s chemistry and anatomy. It is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity that occurs more frequently and more severely than is typically observed in comparable levels of development. Symptoms must occur for at least six months for a diagnosis. ADHD begins in childhood and while some children outgrow this, some continue to exhibit symptoms into adulthood.
