ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder) is a mental disorder characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention and/or hyperactive-impulsive behavior. There are three types of ADHD: Type 1 is predominantly characterized as problems with attention and is sometimes referred to as ADD while Type 2 is predominantly characterized as hyperactive and impulsive behavior. Type 3 combines symptoms of both.
Strategies for managing difficult behaviors associated with the disorder include strict schedules for waking, homework, sleeping, etc. and making creative and physical activities a priority. Avoiding foods that can trigger these behaviors is vital as well.
