Adults With ADHD
Much has been written about how to help children with ADHD, but next to nothing on ADHD in older adults – which can often mirror, imitate, or exacerbate the normal brain changes associated with aging. Dr. Kathleen Nadeau, a foremost authority on older adults with ADHD, offers strategies for how this population can lead calmer, happier, more productive lives, and create a more ADHD-friendly retirement. She explains how living with ADHD in later years is hugely influenced by multiple factors such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and learning disorders combined with a heightened level of stress, the presence or lack of support from others, and the number of people we are responsible for can all complicate and intensify the effects of ADHD. She is the founder and clinical director of the largest private ADHD specialty clinic in the US.
