Adult ADHD Q&A

What is adult ADHD? 

Commonly called ADHD, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is a mental health condition that affects a person’s ability to concentrate, control impulses, and sit for long periods.

While most individuals receive a diagnosis during childhood, its effects can last well into adulthood. A thorough evaluation allows for your provider to develop an individualized treatment plan to help you or your loved one manage ADHD symptoms effectively.


What happens during an adult ADHD evaluation? 

An ADHD evaluation at Resilient Psychiatry might involve several tests. Skilled adult ADHD specialist Maureen Conway reviews your medical history, performs an assessment to evaluate your mental health, and rules out any other conditions, like anxiety or depression.

Next, she gathers information about your family medical history and the symptoms you’re experiencing. She may ask for school records and interviews with friends, family, caregivers, teachers, and sports coaches in life. 

Additional tests include:

ADHD criteria

Your provider may compare your symptoms and signs to the criteria set forth by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5.


ADHD rating scale 

You may fill out a questionnaire so that Maureen can rate your responses, helping to determine whether you show signs of adult ADHD.


Types of adult ADHD 

There are three types of adult ADHD that your provider may diagnose: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive, or combined (a combination of both types).


What are the treatments for adult ADHD? 

Once you have an adult ADHD diagnosis, Maureen may recommend any combination of the following treatments:


Stimulant medications are pretty effective at reducing many signs of adult ADHD. These prescriptions can help to increase concentration and reduce hyperactivity.

Certain medications and conditions require in-person assessments, evaluations, initial consultations, and follow-ups as necessary*. Maureen will work with you to coordinate and discuss with you in more detail.


Behavior therapy 

Techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) work to address unhelpful thoughts and behaviors. CBT helps to develop coping strategies that create more positive patterns.



Talk therapy, also called psychotherapy, helps adult ADHD patients solve problems one-on-one.
