Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms continue as problems into adulthood for more than 60% of children with ADHD. The following behaviors and problems might stem directly from ADHD, or might be the result of related adjustment difficulties:

  • Chronic lateness and forgetfulness.
  • Anxiety.
  • Lack of organizational skills.
  • Low self-esteem.
  • Employment problems.
  • Difficulty controlling anger.
  • Impulsiveness.

If these difficulties are not managed appropriately, they can cause emotional, social, occupational, and academic problems in adults.
