Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has long been seen as just another name for bad behaviour. But we now know that ADHD is as real as autism and dyslexia. It’s the most common – and fastest growing – childhood disorder. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Many adults are now being diagnosed too, having struggled with chaotic lives for years without knowing why.

This timely investigation looks at the causes and effects of ADHD. Do behaviour therapies control the condition as well as medication? Are drugs now handed out as performance enhancers? And should people with ADHD even want to change?
