Understanding ADHD in Adults

Adult ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects attention, impulsivity, and executive functioning. Symptoms can manifest differently in adults compared to children, which contributes to the challenge of diagnosing the condition. However, with the help of neuropsychological evaluations, we can identify the specific cognitive markers associated with adult ADHD, enabling accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment interventions.

The Significance of Neuropsychological Evaluations

Neuropsychological evaluations are cornerstone assessments in diagnosing ADHD in adults. These evaluations consist of a series of tests and assessments that measure attention, executive functioning, memory, and impulse control. By objectively measuring cognitive strengths and weaknesses, these evaluations provide valuable data to differentiate ADHD from other conditions and facilitate an accurate diagnosis.
