The Manifestation of ADHD

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common childhood conditions, but can also persist till adulthood.

It is usually characterised by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity, which leads to marked interference with functioning or development. The signs can include fidgeting, disorganized behaviour, making errors in class/homework, failing to follow instructions, interrupting in between, etc. Some people withADHDhave fewer symptoms as they age, but some adults continue to have major symptoms that interfere with daily functioning. In adults, the main features of ADHDmay include difficulty paying attention, impulsiveness and restlessness. Symptoms can range from mild to severe.

Adult ADHD symptoms may include:

  • Impulsiveness

  • Disorganization and problems prioritizing

  • Poor time management skills

  • Problems focusing on a task

  • Trouble multitasking

  • Excessive activity or restlessness

  • Poor planning

  • Low frustration tolerance

  • Frequent mood swings

  • Problems following through and completing tasks

  • Hot temper

  • Trouble coping with stress

ADHD is one of the many reasons why kids seem to not do well in school or drop out altogether. It is seen to me more prevalent in male children, and can come with learning disabilities as a comorbidities.

Here we enlist some of the symptoms that can be seen in ADHD that differ from its classic manifestation:

  • Mood Swings

  • Restlessness/Anxiety

  • Oppositional Behaviour

  • Sleep Difficulty

  • Social Awkwardness

  • Depressive Features

  • Poor Self-Image
