Being Successful with ADHD
ADHD is a neurological condition that interferes with the brain’s executive functioning, meaning the management of thoughts, emotions and actions.
ADHD typically manifests itself in a persistent pattern that significantly hinders daily functioning.
Challenges may include any of the following:
- catching details
- following instructions carefully and completely
- listening when spoken to directly
- losing or forgetting important things
- feeling restless
- talking excessively
- blurting out answers before hearing the whole question
- waiting your turn
