ADHD in older adults, ADD in older adults, research world-wide literature review
ADHD in adults has now been recognized by clinicians for many years now. However, ADHD in older adults has received almost no attention because research has limited its work to those people under the age of 50. There is a body of research developing in older adults and I recently published with my colleagues a review of world-wide english published literature.
National Public Radio had the foresight to understand that this population of older adults with ADHD needs acknowledgement with a call to attention for their need for evaluation and treatment. To that end, they developed a broadcast with my assistance.
I invite you to listen/read both the audio and web text version are now available to the public. We can no longer discount the consequential negative impact of untreated ADHD on your parents and grandparents.
