Because ADHD was thought to be only a childhood disorder, many adults age fifty and older are only being diagnosed in later life. Often they get tested for ADHD when their adult children or grandchildren are diagnosed with ADHD. Diagnosing ADHD in ages over fifty is a little more difficult because ADHD can be overlooked because of natural cognitive decline. Clinicians must become aware of ADHD and look for it in symptoms of inattentiveness, distraction, forgetfulness, and general difficulties of disorganization. Screen for ADHD!
