We usually attach ADHD to children.. But does it really stay until that person gets older?

Although it is usually attached to children, it does indeed affect adults as well. In fact 60% of children will maintain the disorder to adulthood - although they don't outgrow it they often learn to adapt.

I do think that ADHD does carry on into adulthood. I know several adults who deal with this problem. In some cases, you don't have to use medication to treat this condition.
