Many adults experience the symptoms but may not know they have ADHD. ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood, and according to most of the current literature, about 50% of adults continue to exhibit the symptoms. Whether or not symptoms abate with adulthood, ADHD is a lifelong condition and some adults may not be aware that some of their problems may be due to symptomology of ADHD – or due to the fact that they have not learnt to successfully navigate these issues.
