ADD / ADHD Help Guide

Adult ADD / ADHD

Attention deficit disorder—also known as ADHD or ADD—is not merely a problem with paying attention. Whether you’re a child or an adult, ADHD makes it difficult to manage the multiple tasks of daily life, especially complex tasks that require organization, planning, and sustained focus.

ADHD is challenging, but once you understand the problem and how it affects your (or your child’s) life, you can learn to compensate for areas of weakness and take advantage of your many strengths and talents.
