Attention Deficit Disorder in Adults
By Kevin Lavery, KWMU
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, has historically been thought of as a childhood affliction that kids eventually outgrow. But in reality, ADHD can and often does continue into adulthood. Friday (Oct. 3) in suburban St. Louis, mental health advocates are hosting a seminar to examine the lifelong impact of the disorder. KWMU's Kevin Lavery prepared this report. The seminar, entitled "New Perspectives: A Whole-Life Picture of ADHD" will be held Friday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Richmond Heights Community Center (The Heights), 8001 Dale Avenue. The event is free.
