Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a diagnosed behavioural condition. The diagnosed individuals are affected in a variety of ways including displaying challenging behaviours, shortened attention spans, inability to follow verbal instructions, inability to concentrate on focused activities, poor sleeping patterns, possible dietary requirements and receptive language difficulties.

This is a lifelong condition which can be managed through medication, routines, individualised strategies including fidget toys, visual aids, sensory items and timetables.

Appropriate communication has a significant effect on ADHD, both in terms of supporting individuals to communicate more appropriately and amending our communication to enable them to understand us to the best of their ability.
