Understanding ADHD

ADHD awareness and support are critical in today’s age. Characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, ADHD stands out as a prominent neurodevelopmental disorder. People with ADHD often face challenges, such as struggling with executive functioning, working memory, social skills, and anxiety. Despite affecting almost 140 million people globally, myths and misconceptions about ADHD persist.
