Can Adults Have ADHD?
By John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
Attention deficit disorder is not just a childhood disorder. Adults can be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as well. Sometimes this is a result of the person’s childhood ADHD progressing into adulthood (up to 70 percent of children will continue to struggle with ADHD as adults). Other times, an adult can either simply never been diagnosed as a child, or develop the disorder later on in life.
Adult attention deficit disorder looks a lot like childhood attention deficit disorder. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the symptoms are largely the same. If you answer “Yes” to six or more of the below symptoms, you may have adult ADHD:
Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in course work, work, or other activities
