Is It Adult ADHD? A Basic Primer
ADHD is usually considered a childhood disorder, so symptoms in adults are often overlooked, even though an estimated four percent of the adult population meets the criteria.
What ADHD Looks Like in Adults
ADHD adults find it hard to manage clutter, be on time, and complete projects. They may interrupt others, or blurt words out without thinking. Adults with ADHD are more likely to be distracted while driving, reading, and doing other tasks. These behaviors frequently lead to underperformance at the workplace and challenging relationships.
