ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and ADD (attention deficit disorder) have been highly publicized conditions in the last 15 years. However, most of the talk and research about ADHD has been directed towards the childhood version with nothing much more than a passing mention of adult ADHD.
This is a real oversight as most of children with ADHD carry their ADHD characteristics into adulthood, where they have to deal with different pressures and responsibilities. It is thought that between 2 and 4 percent of the population suffers from adult ADHD, which has a profound effect on a person’s quality of life, effecting relationships, employment, and even everyday tasks.
AdultADHD.net was created to address the lack of attention to the adult version of ADHD, by offering a comprehensive guide to the condition, and educate people about its symptoms, coping strategies, and treatment options.
All articles are written by our team of professionals, including a sufferer of adult ADHD, a nurse, and headed by Tammy Preston, an MS in biology.
