Underrecognized ADHD in older adults with cognitive difficulties
The Wall Street Journal published an article on ADHD in older adults over age 50. Quoted in the article, I helped provide important information on this subject. Highlighting why ADHD needs to be considered in older adults complaining of cognitive difficulties, the article serves to increase public awareness on a disorder clinicians don’t ever consider when seeing older adults.
Fortunately, ADHD in older adults responds very well to the traditional ADHD medicine and therapies. It is so important to get a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation from an expert who understand how to make this diagnosis accurately.
If you are reading this blog, then you are interested in this topic. I encourage you to listen to my NPR interview on ADHD in older adults. It is never to late for an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
