  • Inability to follow through with assigned tasks
  • Poor time management
  • Impulsiveness
  • Inability to tolerate normal frustrations
  • Having a “hot temper”
  • Difficulty prioritizing tasks
  • Restlessness or inability to remain still for long

Everyone experiences these issues at times. But if you notice these behaviors occurring frequently, it’s time to come in for a thorough ADHD assessment.  

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

If your behaviors begin to interfere with your performance at school or work, your ability to build and maintain healthy relationships, or limit your daily activities, meeting with a skilled ADHD professional is recommended. 

Many people diagnosed with ADHD as children believe that the condition will get better during adulthood. They may even be able to point to improvements, especially if they received treatment during childhood and adolescence. In reality, many kids who experience ADHD will continue to need support throughout adulthood.

For many adults, medication is an essential part of managing ADHD. However, if you’ve been on drug therapy for a while, there may be newer medications that might provide a better fit for your needs.
