About Adult ADD/ADHD

Adult ADHD

While the onset of ADD/ADHD often occurs during child­hood, it frequently goes un-diag­nosed into adult­hood. What often happens is the hyper­ac­tive compo­nent fades and one is left with many inat­ten­tive symp­toms. The current research states that ADD/ADHD only occurs in chil­dren, however, there is a move­ment to estab­lish an adult onset of ADD/ADHD, though it is still not clear how that criteria will come to fruition.

Adults with ADD/ADHD may have diffi­culty following direc­tions, remem­bering infor­ma­tion, concen­trating, orga­nizing tasks or completing work within time limits. If these diffi­cul­ties are not managed appro­pri­ately, they can cause asso­ci­ated behav­ioral, emotional, social, voca­tional and acad­emic prob­lems. Some behav­iors and prob­lems may stem directly from ADD/ADHD or may be the result of related adjust­ment diffi­cul­ties: Chronic late­ness and forget­ful­ness, low self-esteem, employ­ment prob­lems, diffi­culty control­ling anger, impul­sive­ness, rela­tion­ship prob­lems, mood swings, depres­sion, and low frus­tra­tion toler­ance.

These behav­iors may be mild to severe and can vary with the situ­a­tion or be present all of the time. Some adults with ADD/ADHD may be able to concen­trate if they are inter­ested in or excited about what they are doing. Others may have diffi­culty focusing under any circum­stances. Some adults look for stim­u­la­tion, but others avoid it. In addi­tion, adults with ADD/ADHD can be with­drawn and anti­so­cial, or they can be overly social and unable to be alone.

Treatment

We incor­porate neuro­feedback within a perfor­mance moti­va­tional model

The treat­ment for ADD/ADHD ranges from medica­tion manage­ment, ADD/ADHD coaching, cogni­tive behav­ioral strate­gies, dietary supple­ments to neuro­feed­back.

neuroAgility provides diag­nostic eval­u­a­tions for ADD/ADHD. We offer state of the art brain training that is respectful and non-stig­ma­tizing, this is called neuro­feed­back. ADD/ADHD can be managed ~ many adults reduce symp­toms and redi­rect aspects of their atten­tional style to func­tion well in careers and rela­tion­ships.
