Featuring Kathleen Nadeau, PhD
While most of the available information about ADHD deals with how it affects children and teenagers, we know it is a lifelong condition. How does ADHD affect people who are age fifty and older? Why are diagnoses increasing in this age group? What special challenges do they face, and how can they improve their daily lives?
Psychologist Kathleen Nadeau is the founder of the Chesapeake Center and the author or coauthor of more than a dozen books on ADHD. She discusses what ADHD looks like in older adults, the ways ADHD is more challenging for women, what to expect if you pursue a midlife diagnosis, and more. She also shares a few simple steps you can take to improve your quality of life with ADHD.
