Attention Deficit Disorder and Adults


Linking Concentration Problems, ADHD and ADD

  • Understanding ADHD

    Often ADHD coexists with other conditions such as depression, anxiety, conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder (the latter two in children.) Some symptoms may overlap with other medical conditions.

    ADHD symptoms vary from person to person but consist of some combination of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

    • Inattention. People who are inattentive have a hard time keeping their mind on one thing and may get bored with a task after only a few minutes. Focusing conscious, deliberate attention to organizing and completing routine tasks may be difficult. You may notice restlessness, procrastination, problems remembering obligations, trouble staying seated during meetings or activities, or starting multiple projects at the same time but rarely finishing them.
    • Hyperactivity. People who are hyperactive always seem to be in motion. They can't sit still; they may dash around or talk incessantly. Children with ADHD are unable to sit still and pay attention in class. They may roam around the room, squirm in their seats, wiggle their feet, touch everything, or noisily tap a pencil. They may also feel intensely restless.
    • Impulsivity. People who are overly impulsive seem unable to think before they act. As a result, they may blurt out answers to questions or inappropriate comments, or run into the street without looking. Their impulsivity may make it hard for them to wait for things they want or to take their turn in games. They may grab a toy from another child or hit when they are upset. They often have difficulty making and keeping friends.

     

    ADHD is a complex condition and is therefore sometimes difficult to diagnose. And occasionally, ADHD is not recognized until adulthood.

    Even in adults, symptoms of ADHD look different depending on the person experiencing them.
