Adult Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a life-long disorder that may not be diagnosed until much later in life. Symptoms of distraction, forgetfulness, and procrastination become confused with normal aging, yet may cause a significant disturbance to the quality of life in these patients. In this episode, we interview Dr. David Goodman, an expert on adult ADHD about how to effectively manage ADHD in the older population. We discuss hidden challenges, and the most effective approach for accurate diagnosis.
Dr. Goodman is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the director and founder of the Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Center of Maryland in Baltimore, MD.
