Abstract

Once perceived as a condition that individuals outgrew, there is now evidence that impairing ADHD symptoms persist into adulthood for the majority of individuals with the condition. Impairing and developmentally inappropriate symptoms of inattention and overactivity/impulsivity define the condition. ADHD is also associated with many other conditions including learning disabilities, conduct disorder, anxiety, mood, and substance abuse disorders. Treatments for ADHD include medication, academic, cognitive behavioral and behavioral interventions.
