Attention deficit hyperactive disorder  (ADHD)

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neuro developmental and mental disorder characterized by problems paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person's age. These symptoms begin by age six to twelve and persist for more than six months. In children, problems paying attention may result in poor school performance. Although it causes impairment, particularly in modern society, many children have a good attention span for tasks they find interesting.
