First, my purpose in writing this paper is to enlighten myself and others about an affliction that, as of 2011, in the United States alone affects 5.3 million children, ages 3-12, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a segment of attention deficit disorders, is a real affliction that cannot be cured. I am hoping to provide a simple but thorough explanation of what happens in an afflicted person, and what makes them different from a non-afflicted person. I also want to educate others concerning the causes and treatments of this affliction.
