Managing Adult ADHD- Free CEUs for Case Managers

Managing Adult ADHD– Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common, genetic, neurologic disorder. While originally thought of as a childhood condition affecting hyperactive boys, nearly two-thirds of children with ADHD have symptoms that persist into adulthood. As with childhood ADHD, the diagnosis of adult ADHD is a clinical assessment based on the patient’s medical history, family history, presenting symptoms, and past symptoms. By adulthood, the primary problems generally concern memory and attention. In adults, inattention may present with impaired executive function such as organizational difficulty, poor time-management, difficulty completing tasks, distractibility, and/or forgetfulness at work and at home.
