ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is one of the most common mental health conditions affecting both children and adults in Canada. ADHD is a complex condition that can cause a variety of symptoms but primarily; inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviour. It is further broken down into two types although someone can have symptoms of both, inattention and hyperactive/impulsive type. Individuals with both types of ADHD can qualify for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) in Canada. This includes both children and adults.
