ADHD is not a myth.
It is a medically recognized neurobehavioral disorder that can be managed.
ADHD is not about intelligence or motivation.
However, work, school, home, and social interactions can be challenging when it is hard to pay attention, stay organized, and behave appropriately.
Symptoms of ADHD can affect a person at school or work, but ADHD is not classified as a learning disorder.
ADHD is not just an "excuse."
ADHD is a medically recognized disorder, and the symptoms cause real challenges at work, at school, and/or in social settings.
A person does not have ADHD simply because they become distracted or engage in impulsive behavior.
Although most people are distracted or impulsive once in a while, this does not mean they have ADHD. Only a trained health care professional can tell if you have ADHD.
