ADHD has long been considered a childhood disorder, but adults can have ADHD too. Some adults with ADHD may have been diagnosed and identified when they were young while others only learned later in life about the disruptiveness that this often missed diagnosis can cause.
Adults with ADHD typically struggle with persistent issues such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. Adult ADHD can lead to poor relationships, poor work or school performances, and low self-esteem.
ADHD can be difficult to accurately diagnose. Additionally, there is the common misconception that it only affects children. So there is no surprise that so many deal with the repercussions it causes, without having the proper accommodations in place or correct strategies for success.
Knowing for yourself and having the right plan in place starts with having an informative and open exchange with one of our clinicians. It is never too late to get a diagnosis and treatment. DHW can help you diagnose the disorder and develop a complete plan of action to succeed.
