While Adderall is sometimes prescribed to treat ADHD, it is usually only used in severe cases and only after other medications and behavioral therapy have been tried. Because Adderall is a potent combination of several different analogs of amphetamines and carries a high risk of dependence and addiction it is not approved for use in children under the age of 16, and it especially would never be prescribed to a toddler.
