Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that affects your ability to pay attention, concentrate, listen, stay organized, remember information, and have self-control. Everyone has trouble with these abilities from time to time, but if you have ADHD, you struggle almost constantly—both at school and in other areas of your life, like at home, when playing sports, or even while practicing your favorite hobby or activity.
Signs of ADHD include:
Difficulty listening and paying attention — You might sit in class and blank out, wondering what your teacher has been talking about for the last 30 minutes. When someone talks to you, you feel like you didn’t hear what they just said and you need them to repeat themselves.
