Do you have trouble focusing and staying on task?

 

Do you suffer from disorganisation, procrastination or forgetfulness?

 

If you are having difficulty with restfulness or trouble managing stronger feelings such as frustration or anger, then you may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
