Adult ADHD is different from ADHD in children. Adult ADHD is characterized by symptoms such as difficulty with attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity that persist into adulthood. Adult ADHD can also present differently than in children, with symptoms such as forgetfulness, disorganization, and emotional dysregulation becoming more prominent. Additionally, adults with ADHD may have co-occurring mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression. Diagnosis and treatment of adult ADHD can also differ from that of ADHD in children.

ADHD Testing for Children in in Port Richie
The exact cause of ADHD in children is not fully understood. Research suggests that a combination of genetic and environmental factors may play a role. Genetic factors may include variations in certain genes that affect brain development and function, while environmental factors may include exposure to toxins, such as lead, during pregnancy, low birth weight, and premature delivery. Brain injury, infection, and certain psychological or social factors may also play a role in the development of ADHD. Additionally, some studies suggest that there may be a link between ADHD and imbalances in certain chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. However, more research is needed to fully understand the underlying causes of ADHD.
