hi my name's john boswell tumble licensed mental health counselor in

0:03

saint petersburg florida i'd like to speak a little bit about diagnosing

0:07

adult attention deficit disorder

0:09

diagnosing adult adult attention deficit disorder usually comes about almost by

0:14

mistake in some cases a lot of people will take their kid

0:18

or their child into the pediatrician to a psychologist or a mental health

0:23

counselor

0:23

or mental health professional not find out that their child has attention

0:27

deficit disorder by being educated about the disorder sometimes they realize hey

0:32

i had that you know the same cluster of symptoms are i've kinda been

0:36

experiencing the same thing throughout my life and never really knew what it

0:39

was

0:40

now sometimes i could be really important we can get a proper diagnosis

0:43

of the type of adult you know on certain attention deficit disorder but sometimes

0:48

we have to be really careful in this is where diagnosis can become complicated

0:52

as we need to rule out some other things like anxiety

0:55

or depression oran

0:58

situational factors such as you know adjustment disorder or maybe there's

1:02

some certain stressors and

1:04

in somebody's life

1:05

and the stress associated with that mimics the eighty day or the

1:09

attention deficit hyperactivity

1:10

so its best really ended in adult in diagnosing adult so they needed to

1:14

really go through it

1:17

not only a behavioral checklist of the symptoms with your

1:20

medical or mental health provider but also

1:23

maybe taking subject listen some test such as the bender gestalt

1:26

or the connor rating for

1:28

to actually get some more psychometric dada for your diagnosis but the key is

1:33

to rule out some other you know some other

1:35

mental health problems like i mentioned before anxiety depression

1:39

but just wanted to order stands like that

1:41

and then finally

1:43

in conjunction with the mental health and evaluation i would also recommend

1:47

that the medical exam be performed because some nutritional deficits or

1:51

some poor model imbalances can also

1:54

produce some of the same effects that we see an adult

1:57

onset attention deficit disorder first

1:59

these are ways of diagnosing adult onset a_d_d_ lady h_ d_ and my name is john
