ADHD: How Common Is It in Adults?


ADHD, or Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, is commonly associated with children, but it also affects a significant number of adults. It can be even more common than previously thought because many adults have never undergone ADHD testing. Here are some key points about the prevalence of ADHD in adults you may not have known about:

  • Lack of Diagnosis

    ADHD is often diagnosed in childhood, and it is estimated that 30% to 60% of children will continue to experience symptoms into adulthood. Unfortunately, many adults do not know they are experiencing ADHD symptoms like impulsiveness and poor time management because they were never tested during childhood. Luckily, services like our mental health and wellness in Connecticut can help adults address those symptoms.

  • Late-Onset ADHD

    Some individuals do not experience ADHD during childhood. Some individuals may not receive a diagnosis until adulthood. Late-onset ADHD may occur due to factors such as changes in life circumstances. We offer primary care services in Connecticut to conduct examinations for ADHD and other health issues.

  • Barriers to Diagnosis and Treatment

    Many adults with ADHD face barriers to diagnosis and treatment, including lack of awareness, stigma, and limited access to mental health services. In some cases, it can also be hard to find healthcare providers who are knowledgeable about adult ADHD.
