ADHD is one of the most commonly diagnosed
childhood disorders. Approximately 3.5% of Irish
children and 5% of children worldwide have been
diagnosed with this condition and it affects three
times as many boys as girls. ADHD is a recognised clinical disorder
whereby high levels of hyperactivity/
impulsivity and/or inattention exist, that
result in significant psychological, social,
educational or occupational impairment that
occurs across multiple domains and settings
and persist over time.
