Physiotherapy for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Many individuals with ADHD may also have additional difficulties in their motor skills, including problems with their coordination and may often appear physically clumsy.

Physiotherapy will aim to support, develop and improve any physical or motor skill difficulties.
