What is ADHD
ADHD is Not a “Life Sentence” It Just IS!
Attention-deficit/hyper activity (ADHD) disorder is a common behavioral condition in which the frontal lobe of the brain is developmentally delayed by an estimated 30%.
Approximately 10.2% of children are affected, although estimates suggest up to half of all children are not diagnosed.
ADHD can feel like living in a kaliedoscope of the senses. People with ADHD usually suffer from inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Because of this, there are potential serious problems in young adults with ADHD including academic failure or delay, difficulties with peers or social situations, and risky behaviors including sexual promiscuity and substance abuse.
While medications help to alleviate symptoms, they do not improve executive functioning or social intelligence. Coaching has been proven to be the most effective approach to improving these skills.
