If not diagnosed or properly treated, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is one of the most impairing disorders to grow up with.
In children, aside from their academic performance, ADHD can impact their social and emotional well-being. As they grow into adults without the proper treatment, ADHD can negatively affect their job performance, relationships, mental health and even their ability to drive.
