- Are you constantly losing things or forgetting to do tasks?
- Do you feel like you are always on the go, as if driven by a motor?
- Do you or your child have trouble concentrating at work or at school?
- Have teachers or co-workers commented on your distractibility or your child’s distractibility?
If you answered ‘yes’ to at least two of the above, you may have Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)? Did you know that the number of those diagnosed with ADHD has increased more than 40% in the past 15 years? According to the American Psychiatric Association, ADHD affects 8.4% of children in the U.S., and 2.5% of adults in the U.S.
So, you are far from alone. And the good news is that with greater awareness comes better interventions and treatments.
