Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

A condition where an individual finds it hard to concentrate, may be over-active and can struggle to manage their behaviour. It is not the same as a learning disability. The condition can be managed with good support and sometimes medication. SEE ALSO: Neurodiversity
