Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition. Symptoms can include inattentiveness (such as having a short attention span) and being hyperactive and impulsive.
You may notice symptoms more when a child’s circumstances change such as moving house or school.
Autism is not an illness or a disease. People with autism experience the world in a different way to others. For example, some may find it hard to interact socially and/or may prefer routines. Children with autism can be sensitive to smell, taste, noise, temperature and light.
Autism is a life-long condition and affects around 700,000 people in the UK – more than 1 in 100. It relates to how people see and react to the world around them.
Children with autism can also have many strengths. These can often include being able to produce highly accurate work, having a good eye for detail and having an excellent memory.
