r By Kati Evans

Merit AcademyrADHD is a common behavioral disorder that affects around 11 percent of school-aged children. Boys are about three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it, though it’s not yet understood why.

Kids with ADHD act without thinking, are hyperactive and have trouble focusing. They may understand what’s expected of them but have trouble following through because they can’t sit still, pay attention or focus on details.
