Paying Attention to ADHD
Joanna Garcia,Martin G. Lopez
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactvity Disorder) is a mental health condition diagnosed in childhood. Martin Lopez, Psychotherapist with Baptist Health Care and Counseling, says it cannot be diagnosed in adults.
He explains it is a set of impairments related to memory being able to focus and causes you to have some serious issues in your life.
'Boys who are more prevalent to presenting with the hyperactive type are more likely to be diagnosed in elementary school and girls often present with the inattentive type', points out Joanna Garcia, also Psychotherapist at the same institution.
