ADHD symptoms in adults
Adults who weren’t diagnosed with ADHD in childhood may show symptoms such as:
- Restlessness, excessive talking, or constant activity
- Frequently quitting jobs, ending relationships, overreacting
- Poor driving record
- Procrastination or poor time management
- Difficulty making decisions
ADHD may contribute to strain in personal and professional relationships, especially for adults who don’t realize they have this condition.
ADHD treatment for adults and children
ADHD treatment usually includes a combination of therapy and medication. We provide many forms of therapy for adults and children, including:
- Behavior therapy, which includes strategies patients can use to manage their condition through organization skills, anger management techniques, and coaching to take time to think actions through
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, which helps patients become more aware of how their thoughts and attitudes influence their actions
- Parent management training, which guides you in how to understand and direct your child’s behavior
- Talk therapy, which lets patients discuss their behavioral patterns, as well as ways to address them
- Medications, which may improve symptoms in patients with ADHD. Stimulants and other medications can improve focus and reduce hyperactivity or impulsive behaviors.
