I’m generally a positive person on the subject of ADHD. I absolutely believe that people can learn to manage their ADHD and live full, happy, successful lives. But there’s no denying that, prior to that point of learning to live with and manage ADHD, many of us truly suffer.
Take money, for example. When prominent author and psychotherapist Stephanie Sarkis, Ph.D. shared with me these statistics on ADHD and money management, it made my jaw drop:
- People with ADHD have a greater amount of debt, more difficulty paying their bills, and less money saved up than people without ADHD.
- People with ADHD have lower incomes than those without ADHD, even when they have a similar education level (Barkley, Murphy, and Fischer 2008).
- People with ADHD also miss more days of work due to “unofficial” absences (Secnik, Swensen, and Lage 2009).
- People with ADHD are more likely to take risks that lead to a loss of money (Dreschler, Rizzo, and Steinhausen 2008).
- People with ADHD have higher medical costs, prescription drug costs (for all medications, not just those for ADHD), and more total medical costs than those without ADHD (Secnik, Swensen, and Lage 2005).
While these statistics are staggering, the good news is that adults with ADHD can learn money management skills and turn things around. What’s more than that is we can learn ADHD-friendly money management skills, like the ones that Dr. Stephanie Sarkis teaches.
