Remember that these are learning disabilities, like dyslexia, autism, ADHD and not physical disabilities. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disability in which children consistently show one or more of these characteristics over a period of time: (1) inattention, (2) hyperactivity, and (3) impulsivity.
Characteristics—A recent national survey found that 7% of S. children 3 to 17 years of age had ADHD, and the disorder is diagnosed two to three times as often in boys as girls.
Diagnosis and Developmental Status—There is controversy about the increased diagnosis of ADHD in recent decades. Although signs of ADHD, such as a high activity level and a limited attention span, are often present in the preschool years, classification often doesn’t take place until the elementary school years. Teachers typically report that these children are restless and distractible and have difficulty in working independently, completing seat work, and organizing work.
Causes and Treatment—Definitive causes have not been found, although factors such as low levels of certain neurotransmitters, heredity, prenatal and postnatal abnormalities, and environmental toxins have been implicated as possible causes. Treatment usually involves a combination of academic, behavioral, and medical interventions to help ADHD students learn and adapt more effectively. Parents, school personnel, and health-care professionals must cooperate in this effort. The most common treatment for ADHD is the use of methylphenidate, a stimulant medication that speeds up underactive areas of the prefrontal cortex that control attention, planning, and impulsivity. Not all children with ADHD respond to prescription stimulants, and critics argue that physicians are too quick in prescribing them. Exercise may also help control symptoms of ADHD.

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
