Psychiatrist For ADHD In Adults - Delray Beach Fl

The number of adults presenting for a possible ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) assessment has been astounding. Most commonly, an adult comes into the consultation shortly after learning that their child has been diagnosed with ADHD and the signs and symptoms seem most familiar to the parent. There is a tremendous overlap between the symptoms of the adult and childhood forms of ADHD. However, the trials, tribulations, complexities and necessary multi-tasking of adulthood make this disorder especially disruptive. Family, occupation, hobbies and quality of life are impacted.

Treatment For ADHD

Pharmacologic management can be quite successful, but ADHD coaching and psychotherapy are often necessary. A lifelong history of ADHD can negatively influence personality development and psychotherapy can be quite helpful in correcting false perceptions. ADHD coaching however, focuses on improvement in time management and organizational capabilities.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gross has been repeatedly surprised by the number of adults presenting to his office because of suspected ADHD. Many of adult ADHD symptoms are similar to those of childhood, but because an adult's life is complex, filled with multi-tasking and varied challenges, the day to day disruptions caused by ADHD are often debilitating. Family life, work, hobbies, friends and quality of life all suffer.

Fortunately, treatment can be most effective. Pharmacotherapy has become the mainstay of treatment but ADHD coaching and psychotherapy are often necessary. Growing up with untreated ADHD can have a significant disruptive impact on personality development and psychotherapy can successfully address these issues. ADHD coaching focuses on time management and organizational skill development, often lacking in the ADHD adult.
