Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
What is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)?
Attention Deficit Disorder describes behaviors in an individual who struggles to sustain their attention at school and work which makes them vulnerable to being off task, procrastinating, disorganized and failing to complete work. Sometimes impulsively saying and/or doing things at work can negatively impact performance and when it occurs in relationships can lead to a breakup.
Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Symptoms include a pattern of inattentiveness, distractibility, poor organizational skills, impulsivity and hyperactivity in younger children or fidgetiness in high school, college and adults.
Treatments for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Our first task would be to clarify if you do have ADD. Because ADD starts in childhood, this might involve understanding your current and past school and work performance. Looking at how it impacts you now we would clarify areas of strengths and emphasize your strategies.
We could also discuss medications which can frequently be helpful in addressing inattentiveness as well as coordinating a program with a tutor or professional working coach.
