ADD: Myth vs Fact
Myth: ADD/ADHD is simply a problem of being hyperactive or not listening when someone is talking to you.
Fact: ADD/ADHD is a complex disorder that involves impairments in focus, motivation, organization, memory, and functions of the brain’s management abilities.
Myth: ADD/ADHD is a behavior problem. Children with ADD/ADHD just don’t listen or try to sit still.
Fact: Many with ADD/ADHD have few behavior problems. Many people are undiagnosed because they do not exhibit hyperactivity. Chronic inattention problems cause severe and long lasting problems for learning and relationships.
Myth: Children who have ADD/ADHD usually outgrow it as teens.
Fact: Often ADD/ADHD impairments are not noticeable until the teen years when more self-management is required in school and elsewhere. ADD/ADHD may be subtle, but more disabling during adolescence than in childhood
