Survey of adults reveals life-long consequences of ADHD

n adults without ADHD. On average, those with ADHD had 5.4 jobs compared to adults without ADHD who had 3.4 jobs. Of those surveyed, only 52 percent of the adults with ADHD are currently employed, compared to 72 percent of the adults surveyed without ADHD. Among adults with ADHD who are currently employed and have had more than one job in the past ten years, 43 percent report that they lost or left one or more of those jobs in some part because of their ADHD symptoms.

The survey was conducted among 1,001 adults aged 18 and older by Roper ASW via telephone interviews.

This survey was supported by Shire US Inc.

About ADHD
ADHD is a neurobiological disorder that manifests as a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that is more frequent and severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development. Diagnosing ADHD in adults can help put many of their difficulties into perspective and help them better understand the reasons behind many lifelong symptoms. Proper diagnosis and effective treatment can help improve self-esteem, work performance and skills and social competencies. The most common behaviors exhibited by those who have ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. While hyperactivity is present in some adults that are diagnosed with ADHD, typically adults with ADHD are much less hyperactive compared to children with ADHD.
