Experts are seeing an increase in ADHD diagnoses for adults

The number of adults being diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, has been on the rise over the past several years; some estimates show the rate of increase in adults is faster than that in children.

To help explain why and what it means, The Show spoke with Ishani Deo, a psychologist at the University of Arizona’s Counseling and Psych Services and coordinator for the ADHD Clinic there. The conversation began with what kind of increase they’re seeing, in terms of adults being diagnosed with ADHD.
