Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. He or she may also be restless and almost constantly active. Although the symptoms of ADHD begin in childhood, ADHD can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Even though hyperactivity tends to improve as a child becomes a teen, problems with inattention, disorganization, and poor impulse control often continue through the teen years and into adulthood. Current research suggests ADHD may be caused by interactions between genes and environmental or non-genetic factors. The Mount Kisco ADHD treatment looks for an ongoing pattern of three different types of symptoms such as difficulty paying attention (inattention), being overactive (hyperactivity), and acting without thinking (impulsivity)
