Abstract: The inclusion of people with Attention Deficit Impulsivity and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), in school, college, university, and work has been developing since the nineteenth century because this disorder has similar symptoms to those of a hungry infant, an anxious or antisocial child, a young impetuous or otherwise without social contact, immature adults, lacking an order or commitment; but in the past it was derived from the responsibility of the elders, from the values instilled and from the culture, from the society itself, where they grew up. The inclusion of people with this disorder is due to a multidisciplinary intervention, family interaction, academic-labor-social, therapies, variety of neurobiological specialists, implementation of Educational Integration Projects (PIE) where the entity and its different human and physical resources must adapt to the students to achieve inclusion; the methodologies and processes of inclusion vary according to the field, that is, in the labor part with respect to the entities of initial, middle, and higher education.
