Having a hard time focusing?

Are you constantly telling yourself to focus …

  1. At work
  2. At home
  3. At school
  4. On projects
  5. Do you find yourself daydreaming
  6. Are you hyper at times; jumping from idea to idea without any end in sight?
  7. Unable to complete things?

ADHD

  • Is a neurodevelopment disorder characterized by symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and locomotor hyperactivity.
  • 3% of children and adolescents have ADHD and 4.4% – 5.2% of adults between 18-44 have ADHD
  • ADHD frequently persists into adulthood with up to 60% of children continuing to meet diagnostic criteria during adulthood.
  • Some adults will meet symptom criteria for adult ADHD without ever meeting the criteria during childhood and even adolescents.

Why is this important?
