Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
ADHD is a long-term chronic condition that can continue into adulthood. Untreated ADHD may interfere with an adult’s work performance. They may miss deadlines, forget things, have difficulty following directions, and have difficulty staying engaged during meetings. Adults with ADHD may not complete tasks at home and be very disorganized. They may have a low frustration tolerance, poor social skills, and impulsive behaviors, such as an unpredictable temper, that cause conflict in relationships and with the law.
