Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are both extremely common neurological disorders that can be very frustrating. Symptoms usually manifest before the age of 12, but can also develop later on as an adult. Common manifestations include problems with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. These symptoms can cause problems in a patient’s ability to learn effectively, interact appropriately in social settings, and adversely affects workplace productivity.
Though the two diagnoses are different, the approaches for behavioral interventions are similar. Medications can be effective in returning a patient to higher levels of functioning. Other non-medication treatment options include learning practical tools such as getting better organized, using a pocket planner, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
