You don’t grow out of ADHD. It’s a physiological difference in the brain that is always there. However, you can learn coping strategies and work-arounds that drastically improve your experience with ADHD in adulthood. Executive functions are fully developed around age 25-28 in neurotypical brains, and somewhere around 30 or after for those with ADHD.
