What Is ADHD? Meaning, Symptoms & Tests
The meaning of ADHD is complex. It’s a misunderstood neurological disorder that impacts the parts of the brain that help us plan, focus on, and execute tasks.

Here, we review the symptoms, causes, types, and tests associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
