Attention Deficit Disorder, also known as ADD, is a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay focused, with difficulty in controlling emotions and movement, when compared with the general population. This behavior can easily hinder your child’s capacity to finish their work, and function successfully in society. If your teen is easily sidetracked, jumps from one incomplete assignment to the next, or has poor organizational skills, they may well be facing a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder. The exact cause of Attention Deficit Disorder (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) is unproven but research shows some association with diet, genetics and surroundings.
