| | Re: Anyone dealing with a spouse with ADHD
There are all sorts of ways to improve social behavior, but he needs to be willing to work on it. He can work with a therapist who works with ADHD. Impulse control is the big issue, of course, although it sounds like he has some sensory integration issues too. You may want to have him more fully evaluated. There are some new brain-retraining strategies out there; some have had amazing success. Do some research. If you can find a research program nearby, at a university for example, he might get help for free.
I have a 20 year old son with pretty severe ADHD and I suspect he has other issues, too (born a preemie at 32 weeks). He's learned so much! But I wonder how he'll manage marriage and a family. Quite a challenge under the best of circumstances.
Give it your best shot, b/c you know he is more than the aDHD. But he has to want it to work out and make a continuous effort, and that's hard. Good luck!
