    What is ADHD?

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

    What causes ADHD?

    The exact cause of ADHD is unknown, but the condition has been shown to run in families. 

    Other factors that have been suggested as potentially having a role in ADHD include:

    • being born prematurely (before the 37th week of pregnancy)
    • having a low birthweight
    • smoking, alcohol or drug abuse during pregnancy

    Does your child or anyone you know suffer from ADHD?

    Do you recognise the behavioural symptoms above? Can they be associated to anyone you know?
