Homeopathy For Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder



Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is generally considered to be a developmental disorder, largely neurological in nature.
The disorder typically presents itself during childhood, and is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity, as well as forgetfulness, poor impulse control or impulsivity, and distractibility
About 60% of children diagnosed with ADHD retain the disorder as adults

Classification-

ADHD is a developmental disorder that is often said to be neurological in nature. The term "developmental" means that certain traits such as impulse control significantly lag in development when compared to the general population. This developmental lag has been estimated to range between 30-40 percent in ADHD sufferers in comparison to their peers; consequently these delayed attributes are considered an impairment.

ADHD has also been classified as a behavioral disorder and a neurological disorder or combinations of these classifications such as neurobehavioural or neurodevelopmental disorders. These compounded terms are now more frequently used in the field to describe the disorder.
The behavioral classification for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is not completely accurate in that those with Predominately Inattentive ADHD often display little or no overt behaviors.
