ADHD in Children and Impact on Marriages and Untreated Adult ADHD.
I often assess the impact of a child’s ADHD on marriages. I find the article in the Washington Post this morning to be particularly interesting. It describes how the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD is often difficult. However, I would also contend it’s not only the impact on the child that needs to be determined but also the impact of a child’s ADHD on the parents and their marriage. Of course, when an adult brings untreated ADHD into a marriage this often causes marital problems. …. “Diagnosing ADHD.” (WP 10.29.13).
