Any child may show inattention, distractibility, impulsivity, or hyperactivity at times, but the child with ADHD shows these symptoms and behaviors more frequently and severely than other children of the same age or developmental level. ADHD occurs in 3-5% of school age children. ADHD typically begins in childhood but can continue into adulthood. ADHD runs in families with about 25% of biological parents also having this medical condition. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provide concise and up-to-date information on Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for families.
