Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

A person with ADHD has difficulty paying attention due to attention deficit and/or a hyperactivity disorder. You may have problems with focus, organization, and completing tasks as well as impulse control issues. It is often diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, however screening and testing can be done as an adult.

ADHD is a very common disorder. Early childhood is the most common time for it to begin. Adults often don’t realize they have it until their children are diagnosed. As a result, they begin to notice their own symptoms.

ADHD can be treated with medication, behavioral modification, and therapy.
