Did you know that ADHD is an executive functioning disorder?
Executive functions are carried out in the frontal lobe of our brains and they include things like memory, time management, planning, organizing, flexibility, impulse control and emotional regulation. People with ADHD will struggle in these areas because they are not functioning optimally. This can lead to missed appointments, double booking yourself, interrupting conversations, not being able to work out a problem in your mind because it can’t hold all the facts at once, having a hard time keeping a tidy house and so much more!
The struggles of ADHD go far beyond focus and attention.
