ADHD in Adults Fact or Fiction

For many years we thought that most children grew out of ADHD, now we know that is a myth. Some adults very successfully learn to manage their lives with ADHD, some just get through knowing they are capable of more, too many struggle, fail and sadly do not get the help which will allow them to reach their potential.

There are in excess of one million people with diagnosable ADHD in Australia, most of whom are adults and with no diagnosis or access to treatment, which could improve the quality of their lives. We know the cost in economic terms is huge, but the personal cost is unmeasurable, not only for the person with ADHD, but for their families and friends.
