There is now considerable evidence that ADHD often persists into adulthood. ADHD in adults is less common than ADHD in children. Nonetheless, in cases that persist into adulthood, the functional impairments, psychiatric comorbidities, neuropsychological and neurobiological anomalies, and treatments are highly comparable to those seen in children. And although the response of adults with ADHD to the ADHD medications appears high and comparable to that seen in child ADHD, new psychosocial treatments may be required to address the more varied forms of impairments in major life activities in adults than is the case for children with ADHD.
