If left untreated, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder can negatively impact one’s life.
“It can cause children to not do well in school, have difficulty with social skills or knowing how to interact with other children,” said Sandy Allen, licensed professional counselor with the Family Counseling Center. “Adults with ADHD tend to have more difficulty in relationships and keeping jobs.”
Additionally, Allen said parents of children with ADHD have a much higher divorce rate as it puts a lot of stress on a marriage.
