ADHD in kids is the most highly researched disorder in the sector, however we all know reasonably little about how ADHD affects adults — and virtually nothing about its presentations and challenges for older adults. Not see you later in the past, we concept that people outgrew ADHD; even as of late, many professionals consider that ADHD is a minor factor for older adults. Statistics tell a different tale.

Accurate diagnosis and treatment for older adults is important, yet few psychiatrists, neurologists, and psychologists are skilled adequately in mid-life or late-life ADHD. As a outcome, there is a strong risk that never-diagnosed ADHD in older adults will probably be mistaken for early indicators of dementia.

Listen and be told from Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D., about:

  • How to distinguish ADHD from delicate cognitive decline in older adults
  • The struggles and advantages of a late ADHD diagnosis
  • Key issues when treating older adults with drugs and psychotherapy

  • The other demanding situations men and women with ADHD face in their later years
