While Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is commonly associated with childhood, research indicates that deficits in attention and executive functioning can persist well into adolescence and adulthood. For those individuals whose symptoms are misunderstood or misdiagnosed, these unaddressed deficits are associated with academic underachievement, underemployment, and psychosocial difficulties. The current presentation seeks to explore the literature regarding the long-term impact of unmanaged or undiagnosed attentional deficits and executive dysfunction and how these symptoms can interfere with all areas of functioning.
