Advances in ADHD: Focus on Transition of Care and Better Outcomes Across All Ages

About This Series

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), although relatively common, is underrecognized by clinicians. Diagnosis of ADHD may be complicated by the presence of comorbid psychiatric disorders, lack of clinician confidence in assessment and screening, and differences in clinical presentation over the life span.  As people with ADHD age and transition into different phases of life, the burden of illness also changes, as do their treatment needs and goals. A multidisciplinary approach to care is often necessary. Patients, caregivers, and clinicians need to be aware of how ADHD changes over time and how important life transitions may require changes in the therapeutic approach.
