ADHD Partner Survey

About the ADHD Partner Survey, the most comprehensive and rigorous research into Adult ADHD in relationships

The ADHD Partner Survey is the largest, most comprehensive survey on Adult ADHD. But it’s not not solely relationship issues.

In 64 questions, I asked 164 partners of adults with ADHD about everything from employment to experiences with treatment to health conditions. Their own and their ADHD partners.

The results informed my first book and are excerpted in the first-ever chapter on couple therapy I wrote for Russell Barkley, PhD’s clinical guide.

Why did I survey the partners and not the adults themselves? Great question!  I explain that in the first post, along with the reasons for conducting the survey: About the ADHD Partner Survey.

  • ADHD and relationships—from many angles
  • Financial
  • Sexual
  • Co-parenting
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Health issues (for the ADHD partner and the respondents)
  • Experiences in finding ADHD treatment and couple therapy
