Approximately 10 million adults have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Living with ADHD, you may experience trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors, and being overly active.
ADHD may also be associated with depression, mood or conduct disorders and substance abuse.
What is ADHD?
There are three different types of ADHD, depending on which types of symptoms are strongest in the individual:
Predominantly Inattentive Presentation: It is hard for the individual to organize or finish a task, to pay attention to details, or to follow instructions or conversations. The person is easily distracted or forgets details of daily routines.
Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation: The person fidgets and talks a lot, feels restless and may have trouble with impulsivity. Someone who is impulsive may interrupt others a lot, grab things from people, speak at inappropriate times, or have a difficult time waiting their turn or listen to directions.
Combined Presentation: Symptoms of the above two types are equally present in the person.

Common Reasons To Start ADHD Counseling in Davie, FL
Inattention means a person wanders off task, lacks persistence, has difficulty sustaining focus, and is disorganized; these problems are not due to defiance or lack of comprehension.
Hyperactivity means a person moves about excessively when it is not appropriate, and/or excessively fidgets, taps, or talks. In adults, it may appear as extreme restlessness or wearing others out with their activity.
Impulsivity means hasty actions that occur in the moment without a person thinking first; or a desire for immediate rewards or inability to delay gratification. Impulsive actions may have high potential for harm. An impulsive person may be socially intrusive and interrupt others excessively or make important decisions without considering the long-term consequences.
How ADHD Counseling can help you
In addition to the benefits of therapy, adults with ADHD can gain social support and better coping skills by talking with family, friends, and colleagues about their diagnosis. If the people in their lives are aware of their diagnosis, they will better understand their behavior.
