Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is a brain-based medical disorder, that does not discriminate against who it affects, according to an article on https://www.adhdawarenessmonth.org/adhd-facts/. What we do know is that many people are affected by it and there is no one fits all approach to treating it. It is important to note that ADHD is hard to diagnose given that many of the symptoms are heightened versions of normal behaviors. This means there is no single test that determines if a person is affected by this disorder. What we do know is that people who suffer from the disorder often display hyperactive behaviors in order to keep their brains functioning at full capacity. Movement is a critical component to helping people with ADHD. Going for a walk, having something to fidget with, or getting up to do stretch breaks can all help alleviate the symptoms of the disorder, but may not be the only interventions needed for someone to fully function in their lives.
