Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects children and adults behaviour. People with ADHD can appear to be restless, children can have difficulty concentrating and may act on impulse .
One in five children in care have been assessed as having ADHD. So many adopters and foster carers experience this in their family. Symptoms of ADHD can be noticed at an early age and may become more noticeable when a child’s circumstances change, for example placement move or when they start school.
Most cases are diagnosed when children are 6 to 12 years old.
People with ADHD may also have additional challenges, such as sleep and anxiety disorders.
Anna gives insights about adoption, ADHD and how adopters can build their child’s resilience.
