Episode Description

ADHD is a complex, heterogeneous, and often-misunderstood condition. For example, did you know that 75% of people with ADHD have at least one co-existing psychiatric diagnosis alongside ADHD? In fact, 60% of people with ADHD have two or more comorbid conditions. ADHD’s most common travel companions are depression, anxiety, in adults, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) in children and adolescents, particularly.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (SDBP) are leading the charge with new diagnostic and treatment guidelines for Comorbid Complex ADHD that factor in the importance of addressing not only core symptoms of ADHD, but these common co-existing conditions simultaneously. Families and clinicians want to know the best practices for ADHD diagnosis, and all the associated features and comorbidities that affect quality of life. It’s time for parents and clinicians to take a fresh look at diagnosing and treating the whole child.
