AD/HD stands for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. AD/HD is a neurological disorder (meaning it has to do with your nervous system) that makes it hard for a person to pay attention and/or control their behavior. Often this disorder is classified by three characteristics: inattention (daydreaming, being distracted), hyperactivity (being wired, restless) and impulsivity (being hasty, rash). A person may have all of these traits or a combination of the three.
