Adult ADHD and Neuro-intimacy in Couples
KEY POINTS: Adult ADHD is associated with many life problems that can also affect relationships. The loved ones of adults with ADHD often feel the stress from the ripple effects of their partners' ADHD. A core coping strategy for couples with at least one adult ADHD partner is to regularly check in with each other. In addition to the functional benefits of the relationship check-in, it can also help build and maintain intimacy.
