ADHD is a complex issue and as October is ADHD awareness month, we decided to share information about it.
It’s estimated than over 6 million children have been diagnosed with ADHD in the US. When we talk about ADHD, we always think about children. However, it’s important to clarify a few points:
- ADHD can affect children and adults
- Women and men can be affected equally, although males are almost three times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than females.
ADHD is a neurobiological disorder.
This means that an ADHD brain is wired differently and it affects people’s behavior. Adults may go undiagnosed because they have been able to adopt coping mechanisms to succeed in their career and life. For example, they have put in place methods to stay super organized, or they may exhibit a behavior of perfectionism.
As Carol explained us during her first visit to InnerOptimal, Inc. she had become very anxious about everything, and was not able to remember anything anymore. Suddenly, it had become very difficult for her to perform well at work, doubting herself and loosing self-confidence.
Like Carol, 80% of ADHD people have at least one co-existing condition, such as anxiety, mood disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.
After a few sessions of brain training, Carol felt more relaxed. Her anxiety level dropped as her training program advanced and she was able to focus better.
An ADHD brain is wired differently
But like any other brain, it can also be optimized and re-wired to perform at a higher level, restoring and enhancing performance. A brain training is life-changing, with lasting results.
