Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) not only affects up to seven percent of all children and adolescents in Germany, but also up to 4.5 percent of all adults. ADHD can lead to limitations and problems in everyday life, at work and in private life, reduce the self-esteem of those affected and cause avoidance behavior and addiction problems.
