Today’s fast paced world is full of distractions that make it difficult to focus, especially when you need to.
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused, paying attention, and controlling behavior. According to the Center from Disease Control, approximately 9.5% or 5.4 million children 4-17 years of age have been diagnosed with ADHD as of 2007. Additional research shows that these symptoms continue into adulthood for about 60% of children with ADHD. That’s roughly 4% of the U.S. adult population, or about 8 million adults.
