At Little Steps, one of our goals is to keep parents informed of any types of disorders that children might have. We aim to promote knowledge, understanding, and discussion to help parents who may face such situations.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common disorders occurring in little humans and teenagers that can also continue into adulthood. It is characterized by difficulties with concentration, focus, and attention which may lead to difficulties with memory, behavior and physical and psychological organization.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Adler, the director of the Adler Family Centre in Hong Kong. He is a licensed psychologist in the US and received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Yale University. Below we recap some of the key points of that interview to give you a better understanding of ADHD, its treatment and steps parents can take at home and school.
