Kids and Adults can have ADHD? Watch this Video with a kids’ perspective!

There are 3 core symptoms of ADHD: inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. The following are examples of how ADHD symptoms may appear in adults.
Only a doctor or other trained health care professional can diagnose ADHD.

When we look at these symptoms we may all feel like we have a little ADHD but let’s work with what is good about it and what causes difficulties.
Symptoms of Inattention
• Often makes careless mistakes and lacks attention to details
• Often has difficulty paying attention to tasks
(Example: difficulty remaining focused during lectures, conversations, or lengthy readings)
• Often seems to not listen when spoken to directly
• Often fails to follow through on instructions, chores, or duties in the workplace
(Example: starts tasks but quickly loses focus and is easily sidetracked)
• Often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
• Often avoids, dislikes, or is reluctant to participate in tasks requiring sustained mental effort, like preparing reports, completing forms, or reviewing lengthy papers
• Often loses things like tools, wallets, keys, paperwork, eyeglasses, and mobile phones
• Often easily distracted by other things, including unrelated thoughts
• Often forgetful in daily activities, such as running errands, returning calls, paying bills, and keeping appointments
Symptoms of Hyperactivity and Impulsivity
• Often fidgets with or taps hands and feet or squirms in seat
• Often runs or climbs where it is inappropriate or feels restless (in adults, may be limited to feeling restless)
• Often unable to participate in leisure activities quietly
• Often acts as if “on the go” or “driven by a motor”
• Often talks excessively
• Often blurts out an answer before a question has been fully asked
• Often has difficulty waiting his or her turn, for example, while waiting in line
• Often interrupts or intrudes on others
How ADHD May Appear in Different Settings?
ADHD symptoms may affect adults at home, at work, or at school, and in social situations. For a diagnosis of ADHD to be made, symptoms must be present in two or more settings.
