Hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder (HADD) is a neurobiological disability, frequently characterised by inappropriate degrees of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. When left untreated, a child is at significant risk of developing impaired learning ability, decreased self esteem, social problems, family difficulties and potential serious long term affects.
