Welcome to the Clinic for Adult Attention Problems - Diagnosing and Treating Adult ADD - ADHD
Excerpted from the website:
- Although ADHD in children has been recognized and treated for nearly a century, only within the last few decades has research unequivocally demonstrated that up to 70% of children with attention problems continue to experience similar difficulties as adults. In many cases, core symptoms of inattention, restlessness, and/or impulsivity lead parents or teachers of affected individuals to seek professional help during childhood. However, in many other cases, the symptoms of the disorder are not recognized until early or middle adulthood, prompting clinical referral at that time. In either case, attention problems likely generate a chronic pattern of impairment across multiple settings.
