Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a developmental disorder involving behavioral and cognitive aspects of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Despite what many people have been told over the years, it is not due to bad parenting, too much junk food, or certain types of food coloring, and while symptoms may change somewhat, people do not outgrow the disorder. ADHD is a biological disorder that is related to genetics, environmental influences, and variations in brain structure and function.
