Sometimes the child can temporarily overcome these difficulties through sheer intellectual giftedness or external structure and help imposed by parents and teachers. As the child turns into an adult and the demands increase, such as when faced with a demanding workplace or advanced education, the deficits become more apparent and impairing.
Diagnosis of ADHD in adults is difficult because it can be mistaken for a variety of other conditions which look similar, such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and many others. The way we diagnose this condition at GSWC is in line with the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance (CADDRA) guidelines.
