Neurocore may be covered by your insurance
Inattention. Distractibility. Disorganization. Impulsiveness. Restlessness. These are just a few common symptoms of adult ADHD or adult ADD.
While popular culture may cause you to believe that ADHD is only a condition that affects kids, that is actually not the case. ADHD can be a serious issue for adults and, if left untreated, can lead to difficulties at work, depression, anxiety, relationship or marital problems, and even substance abuse.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 4.5% of U.S. adults have ADHD, according to the World Health Organization. (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
- 8-10 million of these adults are undiagnosed. (adaa.org)
- 60% of children with ADHD in the U.S. become adults with ADHD, if that ADHD is left untreated. (adaa.org)
Neurocore helps children and adults tackle ADHD. Adults with ADHD have achieved improved concentration, better sleep and greater productivity through our program. Many of these individuals often go their entire childhoods undiagnosed — or misdiagnosed — and then as adults, wonder why they can’t seem to reach their maximum potential. We help these adults identify and breakthrough the barriers that have been holding them back.
Symptoms of ADHD in Adults
While no two people with ADD/ADHD are exactly alike, below are some behaviors that may be more prevalent among adults with it:
- Difficulties with structure and organization
Whether it’s forgetting to pay bills, coming into work late, missing appointments, or needing constant reminders about due dates, etc., adults with ADHD tend to be very “scatterbrained.” They often have trouble sticking with a single task, and may bounce around from task to task, inhibiting productivity.
- Struggling to relax or be still
Some adults who suffer from ADHD may show the more traditional signs of hyperactivity, while others simply find it difficult to relax or “turn their brains off.” This could manifest as being easily distracted or fidgety.
- Poor listening skills or trouble retaining information
Has your mind ever trailed off during meetings or long conversations? Adults with ADHD experience this all the time! This could be a problem for you if you are frequently forgetting details of an assignment at work, forgetting information a friend or loved one told you, struggling to follow instructions or experiencing instances of miscommunication with peers.
Just as children with ADHD have a hard time getting their homework done, adults afflicted with this condition seem unable to sit themselves down and focus enough to accomplish tasks and meet deadlines.
"Job performance was always hard for me, especially if I wasn't really interested in the job. I'd forget to do big things, and little things would take me forever to finish. When I could finish something, there were usually tons of mistakes because I'd put so much pressure on myself to be perfect that I'd freak out so much it became even harder to focus." - Tracy Clayton, via BuzzFeed"
While some adults with ADHD can seem sloppy at work, others seem to be paradoxically hardworking. This is due to the tendency to hyper-focus on a task once they are able to get themselves “in the zone.” While this may not seem like a bad thing at face value, hyper-focusing can make them unaware of their surroundings, unable to change direction as priorities or expectations shift, or neglectful of other tasks and commitments.
If you think you or a loved one may have adult ADD or adult ADHD, get tested by a professional so it can be properly treated.
Neurocore offers a scientific and comprehensive ADHD test that goes beyond a symptoms or behaviors checklist. Most importantly: We map your brain to determine how it is functioning. Adult ADHD symptoms can often be similar to the symptoms displayed if someone has anxiety, depression or a sleep issue, making diagnosis challenging and misdiagnosis a real possibility. But ADHD actually has distinct brainwave patterns. With brainwave mapping technology, the subjective guesswork involved in traditional mental and behavioral health diagnosis is minimized.

If you do have ADHD and want to do something about it, medication doesn’t have to be your only option. While it does exhibit immediate results, it is only a temporary answer to a lifelong issue. Plus, it often comes with negative side effects and years of prescription drug bills. If you are looking for an alternative, natural and more enduring solution, explore neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback is a scientifically-based effective treatment for ADHD. Using brain-charting technology and reward-based behavioral therapy, neurofeedback improves the brain’s speed and connectivity to optimize how your brain functions to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of ADHD.
Medications for treatment of ADHD can provide a rapid reduction of your symptoms within minutes to hours. However, their benefits last for only a short period of time, they do not always work well, and sometimes they cause unpleasant side-effects and/or dependency.
Neurofeedback is a safe, science-based and effective alternative to medications that can produce lasting benefits. Through the use of the latest EEG technology, it helps you improve your attention and focus by optimizing your brainwaves.

OUR ADHD OUTCOMES*
*Of those presenting with a "Clinical" status (T-score ≥ 70) on the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA) DSM-Oriented AD/HD Problems Scale.
1Reduction of T-score by at least 1 point on the ASEBA DSM-Oriented AD/HD Problems Scale.
2Magnitude of improvement on the ASEBA DSM-Oriented AD/HD Problems Scale by at least the minimal clinically important difference (MCID), defined by ASEBA; in this case the MCID is at least 3 points.
3Non-clinical status includes "Borderline" status (T-score between 65 and 69) and "Normal" status (T-score < 65) on the ASEBA DSM-Oriented AD/HD Problems Scale.
4Reduction of T-score to < 65 on the ASEBA DSM-Oriented AD/HD Problems Scale, placing them within "Normal" status.
**Above outcomes based on completing 30 sessions.
