ADHD Counseling in Wichita, KS
Adult ADHD is typically marked by inattention and hyperfocus, hyperactivity (often internalized as restlessness), emotional dysregulation, and excessive mind wandering. Specifically, adults with ADHD present with persistent difficulties in following directions, remembering information, concentrating, organizing tasks, completing work within specified time frames and appearing timely in appointments.
These difficulties affect several different areas of an ADHD adult’s life, causing emotional, social, vocational, marital, legal, financial and/or academic problems. As a result, low self-esteem is commonly developed. However, given the right guidance and counseling, these traits of ADHD could also lead to career success.
The condition often runs in families, and while its exact causes are not fully known, genetic or environmental factors are understood to play a part. ADHD often – but not always – is a childhood-onset condition.
Individuals with ADHD exhibit deficiencies in self-regulation and self-motivation which in turn foster problematic characteristics such as distractibility, procrastination and disorganization. They are often perceived by others as chaotic, with a tendency to need high stimulation to be less distracted and function effectively.
Behavioral therapy can help an adult with ADHD monitor his or her own behavior and provide the skills for improving organization and efficiency in daily tasks.
