Adult Attention Deficit Disorders
Many adults today were raised before Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) became a clear concept, and their teachers and parents were not aware of it.
We now realize that while it starts in childhood, it also persists past adolescence and into adult life, and many people continue to suffer from ADHD symptoms.
Many adults have never been diagnosed and do not realize that their struggles are naturally-based, often causing other symptoms and difficulties in living successfully.
ADHD is a biologically-based condition that runs in families. Common complaints of adults with ADHD include:
- Social anxiety and low self esteem, depression
- Poor time management
- Difficulty making decisions, or impulsive decision making
- Poor reading comprehension or avoidance of reading
- Problems starting or finishing projects despite a good knowledge base
- Short temper, impatience
- Low frustration tolerance
- Relationship difficulties
Diagnosis & Treatment
Diagnosis of adult ADHD requires thorough interviews and completion of symptom ratings, conducted by an experienced clinician.
Treatment must be tailored to each individual, based on his or her needs and strengths.
Individual therapy as well as couples or family therapy may be required.
Medications can be helpful when prescribed by a knowledgeable physician.
