About Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is usually a childhood diagnosis, although, it is not uncommon for a young or older adult to present with symptoms that have been present earlier (less than 11 years old). ADHD symptoms range from increased physical / mental activity, difficulties with concentration/ memory, social/ behavioural difficulties to problems carrying out complex tasks and language difficulties. It is important to note that symptoms can sometimes be masked by a variety of factors, such as, intellect, home/ family/ school environments, co-morbidities etc. Due to the complex and varied nature of ADHD presentations, assessment and treatment should ideally take a multi-factorial approach, utilising behavioural and psychological interventions, as well as, medication (if/as required).
