What Is ADHD?

ADHD is a pattern of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and/or inattention. People with ADHD may find it difficult to pay attention, act impulsively, have trouble focusing, and demonstrate other actions that can impact an individual’s ability to cope and thrive within a daily routine. While many believe children are the only ones who struggle with ADHD, ADHD affects both children and adults. Individuals with ADHD may present with both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity, or one symptom pattern may predominate.

Symptoms of ADHD

Symptoms of ADHD can vary based on the age of the patient and their environment. Children with ADHD are likely to exhibit different symptoms than adults. These symptoms interfere with or reduce the quality of social, academic, or occupational functioning. Symptoms of ADHD include, but are not limited to:

  • Trouble listening
  • Easily distracted
  • Difficulty sitting still for a long period
  • Demonstrate hyperactive behavior
  • Struggle to pick up study skills or work habits
  • Problems with time management
  • Tendency to procrastinate
  • Become easily bored or require constant stimulation

It is important to note that ADHD is not merely a characterization for high energy, behavior that is consistent for one’s development level, defiance, oppositional behavior, or inability to understand tasks or instructions.

Why Therapy for ADHD?

There are a variety of treatment options for ADHD, including therapy. Therapy can be a pragmatic solution for both children and adults with ADHD. At Charlotte Therapy Center, our experts utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to provide patients with skills that can improve everyday functions. Depending on the individual’s symptoms and needs, therapy may focus on developing managing time, planning, or improving organization skills. These skills can improve daily life both in the short term and long term of those with ADHD. These habits may come naturally to some. However, those with ADHD typically struggle with developing these skills and utilizing them. In addition to generating habits and skills, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may also improve emotional and interpersonal self-regulation.
