Children can often suffer from disorders that may prevent them from living healthy, productive lives during their most important learning years.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder that makes it difficult for a child to focus and pay attention. It begins in childhood and can continue through adolescence and into adulthood.
The commonly held belief is that there is no "cure" for ADHD. Children with the disorder seldom outgrow it; however, some may find adaptive ways to accommodate the ADHD as they get older.
Recent research has found certain factors that can help doctors and parents predict if a child is likely to remain diagnosed with ADHD.
