Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity (ADD or ADHD) is not a disease, and therefore, it cannot be said that ADHD can be cured. Its symptoms and different behavioral manifestations can be treated and controlled with the help of appropriate treatment specifically designed for each particular case, minimizing the impact on the life of the individual affected.
ADHD is a condition, not a disease, in which the individual must learn to live with.
An effective treatment, applied as soon as possible, could avoid deficits related to cognitive abilities affected by the disorder and the learning process, which interfere with the child’s maturation. In the majority of cases, limitations in school performance, the perception of oneself, and the environment, and the development of social competence can be avoided.
