ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect children and adults. Characterized by inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, the condition can interfere with your ability to function at work, school, home, and in social settings. Determining the type of ADHD you have and addressing your unique symptoms are crucial to treating the disorder effectively.
The three most common types of ADHD are:
Predominantly inattentive/distractable ADHD can make paying attention, holding conversations, and following instructions difficult.
Difficulty sitting still, interrupting in conversations, and excessive talking are telltale signs of hyperactive/impulsive ADHD, the least common of the three types.
Combined ADHD, the most common type, means you have both inattentive and hyperactive symptoms.
A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is essential to diagnose specific types of ADHD in children and adults.
