Articles for ADHD Adults

 

Recognizing that ADHD may explain the struggles that you or a loved one face everyday is the first step to effective treatment of the disorder.  Learning more about ADHD and the ways it affects your life is another necessary element. Creating a more structured environment and practicing new skills will help build better coping skills. Finally, when you begin to acknowledge your natural abilities and ask for help in areas where you struggle, your "true self" can finally emerge. Effective treatment and creating the support you need to meet the challenges Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder brings, can be life transforming.

To further your education, start with the "ADHD Basics" section to learn about how the disorder presents, why it's important to be evaluated, as well as many tips on how you can find the help and support you need. Numerous articles addressing specific areas of interest offer even more information on dealing with the many challenges of living with ADHD.
