ADHD is a condition related to attention difficulties, impulsive behaviour and, for some, hyperactivity. Neurodiversity, being the intrinsic cause of all Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs), means that the conditions are varied and each person with an SpLD has a unique profile. However, there is some generic support that may be beneficial for all students.
