Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is real. Thirty years of brain imaging research shows that the brain of a person with ADHD is different.
ADHD can cause significant impairments in school, work, and relationships, and may have devastating consequences including substance abuse, accidental injuries, job loss, and legal difficulties.
In the U.S., ADHD affects 17 million people of every age, gender, IQ, religion, and socioeconomic background. And the financial burden is estimated between $143 billion to $266 billion annually.
ADHD is highly treatable with an individualized approach that can include behavioral interventions, parent/patient training, educational support, and medication.
CHADD can help.
The leading resource on ADHD, CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder) provides support, training, education and advocacy for children and adults with ADHD, their families, educators, and healthcare professionals.
And as home to the National Resource Center on ADHD, funded by the Centers for Disease Control, CHADD is the most trusted source for reliable, science-based information.
