Are you impulsive and easily distracted?

Are you struggling to keep up at school or work?

Do you make careless mistakes because you have trouble paying attention to detail?

Do you have trouble following directions and listening?

Do you lose things easily or forget to do certain activities?

If you’re noticing these behaviors, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) could be the cause. According to the Mayo Clinic, ADHD is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent issues, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. Some people with ADHD might exhibit hyperactivity while others exhibit symptoms of inattentiveness, like disorganization and lack of focus.

If you or your child is struggling with ADHD, you’re not alone.

This common mental health issue affects 11% of American children ages 4 to 17 as of 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Intervention (CDC). Even though ADHD is more commonly associated with children, about 4% to 5% of adults in the United States are diagnosed with ADHD.

The average age of ADHD diagnosis is 7 years old, and males are three times more likely to be diagnosed than females. And, more children than ever before are diagnosed with ADHD, which can be attributed to more awareness and environmental factors.

However, in general, about 70 to 80 percent of what’s causing ADHD is genetics. And many people with ADHD might not seek help until later in life. Untreated ADHD can affect a person’s relationships, schooling, job, and day-to-day life. That’s why it’s important to seek help right away.

One of the most effective ways to treat ADHD is through behavioral therapy. Clients struggling with ADHD learn how to manage their symptoms in therapy through proven methods and skills.
