Still Distracted After All These Years – ADHD Women Over 60

Presentation Date:  Wednesday, February 7th    |     Presentation Time: 8:00 pm EST

This presentation will highlight information drawn from the personal interviews of numerous men and women with ADHD over the age of 60. They have chosen to share their stories in order to further our understanding of ADHD in later years. Adult ADHD burst forth upon the scene in the mid-1990s. Those with ADHD that were in their mid-40s at the time are now in their mid-60s. The boomer generation is heading toward retirement and many are already in retirement, yet so little research has been dome on their issues and needs. What little research has been done so farewell be discussed, but the bulk of this presentation will focus on the information that is being gathered in an ongoing project to document the process of aging with ADHD.
