What is Attention Deficit Disorder?

What is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD)?

The core symptoms of ADHD is that it is especially difficult to sustain focused attention on cognitive tasks that person finds boring, repetitive, and unappealing. If they don’t procrastinate till the deadline, which creates a sense of panic which motivates them, their mind wanders quickly, they become distracted as they read a paragraph and recall poorly what they read.

The same may happen with boring lectures without visual aids, especially when not the night before the test.

Paperwork, applications, taxes, balancing a checkbook, making and sticking to a budget are usually more difficult.

Those with ADHD may or may not also be disorganized, impulsive, hyperactive, or restless and fidgety.

There is usually a sense of underachievement and that others with less capability are passing them by. This can lead to disillusionment and low self-esteem.
