Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is well recognized in children and is increasingly recognized in adult populations. ADHD is distinguished from other disorders by differences in intensity and persistence of particular groups of symptoms. ADHD develops from a combination of genetic inheritance and life experiences. In general, these qualities often result in a lack of fit between expectations and the individual's performance. 

The exact characteristics or symptoms defining this set of problems continue to be defined. ADHD is not considered just a problem with poor attention but is additionally a problem with moderating emotions and effective self-regulation, particularly of activity level and impulse control. Dealing with the demands of everyday life requires self-regulation to develop successful life skills. For people with ADHD, problems with self-regulation often cause difficulty managing emotions, so they might respond to small events with excessive behavior and emotion while not noticing more important events. Also, problems with self-control make it difficult to develop good habits. Compared with other people, those with ADHD require more practice over longer periods of time to develop effective behavior that is self-regulated or habitual. These issues can result in difficulties in many aspects of life, including school or job achievement, performance in athletic activities, driving, as well as success in friendships, dating, and marriage. 

Adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often respond extremely well to stimulants and at times antidepressants. Treatment options and successes are similar to those in childhood ADHD. Counseling, also called psychotherapy, can play an important role in treatment by helping to develop increased awareness of ineffective habits. Therapy can also be a way to develop activities to build organization and planning skills. However, no current research has demonstrated that counseling alone will eliminate the actual symptoms of ADHD; that is, counseling can become more effective once an effective medication is found. Medication will "start the engine" but not necessarily provide a way to "steer". In other words, counseling may help with issues of marital instability or poor interpersonal skills but by itself will not end inattention, impulsivity, or feelings of restlessness.
