Attention deficit disorder—also known as ADHD or ADD—makes it difficult to stay on top of the multiple tasks of daily life, especially complex tasks that require organization, planning, and sustained focus.

But while ADHD can be challenging, it doesn’t have to derail your life. There are many things you can do to help yourself stay focused, turn chaos into calm, and manage the symptoms of distraction, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. With education, support, and a little creativity, you can learn to compensate for areas of weakness and take advantage of your many strengths and talents.
