Introduction to ADHD
ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. ADHD is a mental disorder that deprives children of the ability to stay focused and pay attention. This disorder can last the rest of peoples lives, but with the right medication and treatment, people live very happy and healthy lives. So I asked myself, "How can I create a presentation to raise awareness about childhood ADHD?" I chose the topic on childhood ADHD because I'm interested in the topic, and I want to learn more about it. In addition, I want to help the children suffering from this disorder.
A Little More About My Topic...
Childhood ADHD can cause children to have trouble falling asleep.
Due to inattentiveness, children with ADHD have trouble focusing on the task at hand, such as homework.
Children with ADHD, get distracted very easily, and sometimes daydream for periods of time during their day.
