What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that often develops in childhood and can persist into adulthood.

Having ADHD can make it difficult for you to pay attention or follow directions. The condition can also cause excessive fidgeting and difficulties sitting still for any amount of time.

While the underlying cause of ADHD isn’t well understood, you or your child may develop ADHD because of exposure to environmental toxins, low birth weight, or brain injuries.

At South Florida Psychiatry, we provide comprehensive care for adults and children with ADHD, including diagnostic evaluations and personalized treatment services.
