Why care about Executive Functioning as an adult?
Adults and young adults have been under an extreme amount of pressure since the onset of the global pandemic. In what felt like a heart-beat the structures supporting our lives changed. Work, school and the way we relate and communicate shifted. Our everyday routines were upended and the patterned way people organize their lives changed.
For many adults the loss of these structures also meant a loss of strategies and support systems that had previously been used as foundations for self-management. As we grow we learn and create strategies to manage our lives so we can function. When these structures collapse (which several have in the pandemic) many people were left wondering why they feel disorganized or just unable to “get it together”.
Executive functioning issues are often linked to ADHD. In fact, ADHD is often thought of as a dysregulation of executive functioning skills. It is starting to become more understood that ADHD also has strong genetic links and many adults are making connections to their own life experience based on what they discover for their children. Understanding the wide impact ADHD has on one’s life is fairly recent and some adults may not have encountered this information before.
Increasingly, some adults (especially those over 30) are now wondering… “is it possible I have ADHD?” At Education Advantage we offer a screening using a standardized tool based on DSM-V symptoms of ADHD. Our screening will provide you with an objective and clear indication of whether or not ADHD is indeed a possibility for you. Once you know this, you will be empowered to make informed decisions.
“The best benefits from my assessment were the suggestions on coping skills and mechanisms to manage daily challenges.”
“The assessment allowed me to understand the areas I struggle with most, and provided a specific tool/technique that I could implement immediately to address my specific need. I'd highly recommend this process to anyone looking for a little more clarity.”
