Study finds ADHD not just for kids anymore

Office ADHD

A study just released shows a third of children diagnosed with ADHD will still battle the condition as adults.

Researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital studied more than 200 adults who had been diagnosed with childhood ADHD.

They found 29 percent still met the criteria for ADHD as adults and over half had another psychiatric disorder.

The researchers said doctors should not view ADHD as a disorder only affecting kids, rather it could have lifelong implications.
