Describes diagnosis: Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder is a descriptive label for those with decreased ability to hold to task or focus, with a degree of excessive motor activity (fine or large motor movement). I find the label is often over used, but when appropriate, helps justify the use of certain treatments.
