ADHD is a commonly diagnosed developmental disorder in children in the UK, and in up to half of cases, the symptoms can persist into adulthood, making ADHD for Adults an important area of concern. However, with appropriate management and support, individuals with ADHD can lead fulfilling lives as adults.
