Adult ADHD

  • ADHD is a neuro-developmental disorder affecting approximately 1 in 20 Australians.

  • Core features of inattention, impulsivity & hyperactivity often cause challenges in multiple activities of daily life such as socialising.  

    •  Inattention → difficulty following conversations.

    •  Impulsivity → speaking before thinking.

    •  Hyperactivity → talking excessively. 

  • Executive function issues may impact regulation of emotions, planning, organising, and managing time, staying motivated, and working towards goals. 

  • Adults with ADHD may also experience sensory processing differences which can affect the ability to tolerate certain environments and sensory inputs.

  • Symptoms often impact overall health and activities in the workplace, home, and community. This can result in reduced confidence, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and anger.
