Since it's #adhdawarenessmonth. Here's some facts:

ADHD is developmental disorder, like ASD. Whilst it can be comorbid with learning disorders such as dyslexia, and dyscalculia, etc, it is not a learning disorder itself. It's also not a behavioural disorder.
ADHD is classified in 3 presentations in both the DSM (4 & 5), and the ICD-10-CM and ICD-11.

Predominantly Inattentive (formerly known as ADD)
Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive
Predominantly Combined (Meaning you exhibit 5 or more symptoms from both PI and PH)
ADHD is NOT a childhood disorder. It's a developmental disorder meaning that an ADHD child will grow up to be an ADHD adult.

The percentage of children who show ADHD traits, and later grow out of them is incredibly small.
