Chapter 22. ADHD > Managing ADHD

Managing ADHD

The first step in managing ADHD is recognizing it. Many of the symptoms resemble other problems. Correctly diagnosing ADHD often requires seeing a psychiatrist who is particularly familiar with the problem. Frequently, the problem is misdiagnosed as a personality disorder.

Distractibility is less of a problem when there are fewer distractions to deal with. Finding a quiet place to work is therefore helpful. Those with ADHD are less stressed and more successful if they find work that does not require sustained attention and that permits them to frequently get up and move around or to change activities.
