ADHD is a lifelong journey
We are coaches walking this journey. Lets us walk it with you.
But everyone is like that?
Many people are, at times, inattentive, distractible, impulsive or highly active. A diagnosis of ADHD might result IF THE BEHAVIOURS PERSIST over time AND NEGATIVELY AFFECT the person’s family, social, school or work life.
ADHD is one of the most common mental disorders in children and adolescents. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, ADHD affects an estimated 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults in the United States.
ADHD symptoms can vary from mild to severe, and they may persist into adulthood. ADHD can make it difficult for people to control their impulses, pay attention, and sit still.
People with ADHD may also have other mental health conditions, such as anxiety or depression. ADHD can cause problems at home, school, work, and in relationships.
There is no single test used to diagnose ADHD. A diagnosis is based on a comprehensive evaluation by a qualified mental health professional. Treatment for ADHD often includes medication, counseling, and behavior therapy.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that ADHD affects more than 11% of children aged 4-17 years in the United States. Boys are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls: about 1 in 5 boys and 1 in 11 girls are affected.
