According to the Psychiatric Association, An estimated 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults have ADHD (Danielson, 2018; Simon, et al., 2009).
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), also known as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that can significantly impact daily functioning and quality of life.
Inattention: Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty sustaining attention, staying focused on tasks, and organizing their thoughts. They may struggle with following instructions, completing assignments, and maintaining attention to details. They may also have a tendency to become easily distracted or forgetful.
Hyperactivity: Hyperactivity refers to excessive and often inappropriate levels of physical activity. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty sitting still, constantly fidget, or feel a constant need to move. This hyperactivity can manifest as restlessness, excessive talking, or an inability to engage in quiet activities.
Impulsivity: Impulsivity refers to acting without thinking or considering the consequences. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty controlling their impulses, leading to impulsive decision-making, interrupting others, and difficulty waiting their turn. They may also struggle with regulating their emotions and may have a tendency to react impulsively to situations.
ADHD is a complex disorder that can impact various aspects of an individual’s life, including academic performance, work productivity, relationships, and overall well-being. However, with proper diagnosis, understanding, and support, individuals with ADHD can learn to manage their symptoms effectively and lead fulfilling lives.
If you suspect that you or someone you know may have ADHD, it is recommended to seek a comprehensive evaluation from a qualified healthcare professional or mental health provider who specializes in ADHD. They can provide an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include therapy, medication, and other interventions to help manage symptoms and improve daily functioning.
