Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is one of the most researched health conditions in the United States. You may have heard of AD/HD associated with children who can’t sit still, have short attention spans, or suffer from impulsive behavior problems. However, many adults also suffer from AD/HD. Most of them don’t know it. Coaching for ADHD at work can be a good way to keep employees that normally might be lost due to uncontrolled AD/HD.
There are many symptoms of AD/HD, but most are rooted in three broad behavioral categories: impulsive behavior, short attention span, and often hyperactivity. About 3 to 5 percent of children in the United States suffer from AD/HD. Many are helped, but only about one-third experience a permanent reduction in their symptoms by adulthood. . . .
