The Key to Understanding ADHD

ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a psychological condition that often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It can appear in different ways:

– Inattentive Type: These individuals struggle with staying focused, organized, and on task. With little to no signs of hyperactivity, symptoms can include being forgetful, making careless mistakes, and daydreaming.

– Hyperactive Type: People with this type engage in constant movement, even in inappropriate situations. They may fidget, tap, or talk excessively, leaving others feeling drained by their relentless activity.

– Impulsive Type: Those with this type tend to make impulsive decisions without considering the potential consequences. This impulsivity can lead to actions that carry a high risk of harm or are driven by a desire for immediate rewards. They may also frequently interrupt others and display social intrusiveness.

While ADHD was first identified in 1902, it wasn’t until 1990 that research led to an increased awareness and understanding of the condition. This led to a surge in diagnoses, as health care professionals learned how to identify symptoms and parents became more knowledgeable about the condition. Today, more adults are being diagnosed with ADHD after not being properly diagnosed during childhood.
