For many years, ADHD was thought of only as a children's condition.  In fact, many health  professionals currently in practice were trained during a time when they were taught that ADHD is something that kids would outgrow.

We now know this is not true. ADHD is neurobiological disorder that affects individuals across the lifespan.
