About eight million adults in the United States suffer from A.D.H.D., but many do not even know they have the disorder so they go untreated.
A.D.H.D. can affect people in many different ways. Doctors say people affected are not able to reach their full potential. A.D.H.D. can also affect someone's personal relationships.
Symptoms include chronic disorganization, lack of focus and forgetfulness. Now the World Health Organization is offering a self-screening tool to help adults determine if they may have A.D.H.D.
The screening tool alone cannot diagnose A.D.H.D., but it is a good first step to see if you should talk to your doctor. You can access the tool by going to www.ADHD.com.
