Australian Study on Hoarding Link to ADHD in Childhood

When a person has a hoarding disorder that doesn’t just mean he is disorganized or has a strange affinity with his belongings. When someone’s a hoarder, that person must be considered ill. And just like with any illness, it is best caught early and prevented.
With this in mind, an Australia-wide study is to be conducted on children with ADHD, believed to be more predisposed to have hoarding disorder later in adulthood. It is said that close to 30% of people with hoarding disorder also have ADHD.
“Therefore children with ADHD who go on to develop hoarding disorder may have symptoms that remain undiagnosed and not treated until adulthood,” says Ms Lynch, a doctor of psychology candidate.
If this is true, this study may have a chance of deterring a person from becoming a hoarder later in life.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
