ADHD and How Therapy Can Help
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects attention and impulse control. Contrary to common belief, it persists into adulthood and comes in various forms. Key features include difficulty focusing and impulsivity, while hyperactivity isn't always present.
Individuals with ADHD often experience "hyper-focus" on specific tasks but struggle with routine ones and may abandon tasks prematurely. The exact cause remains complex, involving genetics, neurology, and environment.
Diagnosing ADHD involves experts such as neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, pediatricians, and mental health professionals. ADHD affects diverse life aspects but can be managed effectively.
