Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD for short, is a disorder that usually but not always gets noticed before the age of 7. In the past, doctors used the term ADD to describe people who had trouble with staying focused or paying attention and used ADHD only for people who were hyperactive. More recently, these two terms have been combined and people with any of these symptoms may be diagnosed with ADHD.
Someone with ADHD has a lot of trouble focusing and paying attention. They get distracted easily and make careless mistakes. They have difficulty getting organized and may lose or misplace things.
Some people with ADHD have difficulty sitting still in church, meetings and in the classroom. They tend to wiggle their feet and legs, fidget with their hands and seem to be “always on the go”. They may be louder, more talkative, often interrupting others. They may also have difficulty waiting in line.
To be diagnosed with ADHD, the symptoms must have be present since childhood and must be causing problems in some part of your life (i.e, work, school, relationships etc.) Many people with ADHD are not diagnosed until later when the challenges for school or work have increased.
We do not currently have any enrolling studies for this condition. However, we encourage you to submit the form below with your contact information so we have the ability to notify you when a study that matches your interest is available.
