Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder that affects the brains ability to regulate attention and control impulses. It can also affect working memory, self-control, and time management. One of the common difficulties for people who have ADHD, is dyslexia.
It’s hard to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Incorrectly known as attention deficit disorder (ADD), ADHD is partly an attention disorder that affects people in different ways. Some adults with ADHD never received clinical diagnoses as children in their school years. Adult ADHD is often misdiagnosed as depression or an anxiety disorder and can be overlooked as the source of such symptoms.
People of all ages with ADHD tend to be way more susceptible to boredom than others. But being in self-isolation or lock down doesn’t mean all hope is lost!
In these uncertain times many people, both with and without ADHD, are certainly feeling disrupted and experiencing heightened levels of anxiety, stress, loneliness, depression and fear.
Imagine you have a car….. You don’t remember how you actually got the car but you have had it for as long as you can remember, even before you learned to drive. You’re now on your black license, your learner days are behind you and there is no experienced driver sitting beside you in the passenger seat guiding and supporting you.
Finally, a study that can support my clients in moving forward! If you think it’s tough for kids with ADHD to thrive amongst the social stigma, then imagine how it feels for an adult with ADHD, given most of our population is not aware that ADHD may persist into adulthood. Late last year a study was released called “Positive Aspects of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.”
