Buderim Private Hospital’s Managing Adult ADHD Program is an outpatient program designed to meet the needs of those who experience ADHD.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition characterised by differences in brain and cognitive development. Symptoms include difficulties with impulse control, self-regulation, and executive functioning. For most people, ADHD symptoms are lifelong.
ADHD affects thousands of Australians. It is currently estimated that 6-8% of Australian children have ADHD and 3-5% of Australian adults have ADHD, which means that more than 1 million Australians have ADHD.
The symptoms of ADHD make it very difficult (and at times impossible) for people to function normally at school, work, home and in social situations. When this happens, professional help is required to develop ways to make symptoms of ADHD more manageable.
Costs of the program may be supported by:
- Private health funds
- Self-funding (upon approval)
