Description: Over the past decade adults struggling with symptoms of ADHD are more on the forefront and are seeking answers to the occupational and relational hazards that are caused. Choices are made, career paths are being chosen that may not be because of the best ability, but based on the needs of their profile. Opportunities of higher management positions are not realized even as the experience may be more than ample. Relationships are lost or hanging on threads.
