As a teen, you probably have heard about ADHD.  Maybe you heard about it on TV, or studied it in class, or know someone who takes medication because he (or she) has this condition.  Maybe even you have been diagnosed with ADHD.  In either case, you're here because you want to learn more.

The links below are to two new brochures that were prepared especially for you.  They answer the questions that teens are asking about ADHD. 

The first provides basic information:  what ADHD is, who gets it, what to do if you think you have it. 

The second is about specific treatments for ADHD, including medications that we know are helpful.  (These are in PDF and require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.)

Single copies of these are available through the National Resource Center on ADHD. Bulk copies are available for purchase directly from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) at:
  • AAP Bookstore or
  • 888-227-1770 or
  • American Academy of Pediatrics
