— ADULT & CHILD ADHD ASSESSMENT—
What is ADHD?
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a complex neurodevelopmental disability that often persists into adulthood. Individuals with ADHD, including adults, may experience difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity (constantly moving), and impulsive behavior (acting without thinking things through).
ADHD affects millions of people worldwide and typically appears in early childhood. However, it can continue into adulthood if left untreated. These symptoms can impact an individual's success at work, school, and social relationships, causing behavioral difficulties and affecting their overall quality of life.

ADHD is diagnosed more often in boys than in girls. However, recent research suggests that the difference in diagnosis rates may be due in part to the fact that girls with ADHD may exhibit different symptoms than boys with the disorder.

Adult ADHD FAQS
The symptoms of adult ADHD are similar to those in children and can include difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. However, adults with ADHD may have developed coping mechanisms to manage their symptoms, making them less noticeable than in children. Additionally, hyperactivity may be less pronounced in adults, while symptoms such as forgetfulness, procrastination, and disorganization may be more prominent.
ADHD is typically diagnosed through a combination of clinical evaluation, medical history, and symptom assessments. A medical professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental health disorders, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or clinical social worker, can diagnose ADHD in adults.
The most common treatments for adult ADHD include medication, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle modifications. Medications such as stimulants and non-stimulants can help manage symptoms, while behavioral therapy can provide strategies for improving organization, time management, and other skills. Lifestyle modifications, such as exercise and stress reduction techniques, can also be helpful. Treatment can be effective, but it may take some time to find the right combination of interventions.
Adults with ADHD can improve their daily lives by using strategies such as setting priorities, breaking down tasks into smaller steps, using visual aids, and establishing routines. Additionally, communication and relationship skills training can help improve social interactions and relationships.
Adult ADHD is often linked to other mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression. The best approach to treating these co-occurring disorders is often to address both conditions simultaneously, using a combination of medications and therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, in particular, can be helpful for addressing both ADHD and anxiety or depression.
