Attention deficit disorder in adults continues in many people who had ADHD as children, whether or not you were diagnosed as a child. It can cause problems with memory, organization, relationships, and many aspects of living.
The first step is diagnosis according to accepted criteria of the DSM-5 manual. That is done by asking certain questions, like in the Adult Attention Quiz and performing a neurological examination. Sometimes, we recommend computerized cognitive testing as objective supporting information.
