What is ADHD?

Are you, or is someone that you know, one of the 4% of the population who has Adult ADHD? Or, perhaps you are the parent of a child who has ADHD (ADHD affects approximately 7% of children worldwide).

ADHD is a neurobiological disorder that affects people of all ages; people with ADHD have particular challenge with impulsivity, hyperactivity, and/or the ability to pay attention (distractibility).

Historically, it was believed that ADHD existed only during childhood and that most would outgrow their ADHD by adulthood. We now know that this is not true.

Who Has ADHD?

Currently, it is estimated that 1 in 20 adults have ADHD, however, only 15% of these adults have been formally diagnosed and are receiving treatment. This means that 85% OF ADULTS WITH ADHD ARE UNAWARE OF THEIR ADHD AND REMAIN UNDIAGNOSED… and therefore are not receiving the support/treatment needed to move forward with a more balanced and productive life.

Do the symptoms of ADHD change with age? While the symptoms of ADHD are the same in both children and adults, ADHD may manifest differently with age.
