Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that extend into adulthood. While commonly associated with childhood, ADHD can continue to affect individuals throughout their adult years. In Australia, studies estimate that around 4% of adults meet the criteria for ADHD (Australian Bureau of Statistics). Adult ADHD can significantly impact various aspects of life, including work, relationships, and overall well-being.
