Does ADHD Worsen with Age?
The symptoms of ADHD seem to be at their peak during childhood and become more manageable over time. That said, symptoms of attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder will persist throughout adulthood and can become more problematic. During childhood, there are not many responsibilities to be disrupted by symptoms.
In adulthood, numerous responsibilities have the opportunity to be impacted by the disorder. Suppose you have monthly bills that need to be paid, such as rent, insurance, etc. ADHD may make it challenging to pay said bills on time as memory is impaired, and you may forget to do so. Another example is when an adult needs to do their laundry regularly, though they may not have the skills to initiate such a task that is unmotivating and doesn’t bring about a satisfactory reward.
