Roughly 65% of children diagnosed with ADHD still fulfill the criteria for ADHD in adulthood. Symptoms often appear to decrease over
time – in number and in severity. However, adults are often more adept at
managing these symptoms. Some adults compensate for ADHD-related impairment by
choosing lifestyles and careers that suit them. Although they may appear to
function well, high amounts of energy and time are used to accomplish tasks. Ongoing management is therefore crucial - medication where indicated, but also therapy (e.g. social and organization skills training) and lifestyle interventions (e.g. exercise, good sleeping routine and a healthy diet).
