Isn’t ADD / ADHD a condition found only in young children?
No. According to the DSM-V, the prevalence of ADHD occurs in most cultures in about 5% of children and about 2.5% of adults.
Research suggests that symptoms of ADD / ADHD can continue into adulthood and may have a significant impact on adult patients [e.g., impact on relationships, education, work / career, and even personal safety].
Because ADD / ADHD is frequently misunderstood, many patients who suffer from it do not receive proper treatment and can be difficult to diagnose in adults.
