Understanding Attention Deficit: The New ADHD
What's new about ADHD? A lot, according to Yale professor Thomas Brown, Ph.D. You'll think differently about the condition once you get all the facts.
Signs in Childhood
Recent research has shown that many with ADHD function well during childhood and do not manifest any significant symptoms until adolescence or later, when greater challenges to executive function are encountered. Over the past decade research has shown that impairing symptoms of ADHD often persist well into adulthood. However, studies have also shown that some individuals with ADHD during childhood experience significant reductions in their impairments as they grow older.
