Is ADHD affecting your relationship?

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neuro-developmental disorder that involves problems with attention, concentration, impulse control and increased activity levels. Millions of people are affected by the disorder, and it has many faces. Boys were once thought (incorrectly) to be more commonly affected – and that they would just “grow out of it”. In fact, boys, girls, men and women can all live with the effects of ADHD, across every age, ethnicity and socioeconomic status, and it can cause significant impairment at work, in school and in the lives of those affected by it. Dr Zaidi discusses strategies for couples to deal with this situation in a recent addition of Expat Living. Read the full article here.
