Adult ADHD Evaluation
Understanding ADHD in Adults
Recognizing the Challenges: If you’re an adult struggling with hyperactivity, impulsivity, or issues related to attention, memory, or executive functioning, you might be considering an assessment for Adult Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD testing for adults is crucial in identifying the specific type and nature of ADHD, as the disorder can manifest in three major domains: inattentive, impulsive/hyperactive, and combined types. At Thought Wise, we recognize that about 1 in 45 adults may experience some form of ADHD.
The Difference Between Childhood and Adult ADHD
Evolving Symptoms Over Time: While ADHD in adults can be similar to ADHD in children, there are often distinct differences. For many adults, the extreme impulsivity seen in children may diminish over time, possibly due to the development of coping skills and behavioral control. ADHD testing for adults focuses on understanding these nuanced differences and how they impact daily life.
Impact of Adult ADHD
Living with ADHD as an Adult: Adults with ADHD may struggle with sustaining attention and activity levels. Some individuals experience periods of “hyperfocus,” a common term used to describe intense concentration. Addressing adult ADHD often involves seeking treatment, counseling, or therapy to manage and alleviate symptoms.
