Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder that affects millions of Americans each year. Roughly three to five percent of children before the age of seven years old are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder causes those affected by the condition to be inattentive and disruptive to their environment around them with or without a component of hyperactivity. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is twice as likely to occur in boys than in girls. This condition is beginning to become a chronic problem because 30 to 50 percent of the children diagnosed with the condition still suffer from effects of the condition into their adulthood. Most people, as they mature, are able to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for the impairment.
