ADHD is a learning disorder that affects children and adults’ brain structure, changing how the neural networks work. People with ADHD tend to have a harder time controlling their behavior because of a structural impairment in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.

ADHD is also associated with low self-esteem and sleep disorders.
