Everyone is talking about ADHD, and so many people believe the term applies to them. Trouble concentrating, anyone? Trouble sitting still? Have difficulty learning Greek or Latin, you're not alone.
Having ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is more than being impatient or twitchy. It's not being able to listen or concentrate on what people say. It's more than putting things off, it's not finishing ever. See where you stand on the assessment test. We won't score you.
