What does ADHD look like?
Those with ADHD have difficulty with self-regulation, which can impact their ability to focus, concentrate and control impulses. It isn’t that they can’t ever focus, rather they hyper-focus on areas of interest but are unable to focus in non-preferred or “boring” areas.
Other symptoms can include distractibility, difficulty controlling emotions and managing frustration, hyperactivity, friendship and relationship difficulties, and problems with working memory, time management, organization, and executive functioning.* ADHD starts in childhood and persists through adulthood.
