Impact of executive function deficits and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) on academic outcomes in children.
TLDR
The association between executive function deficits (EFDs) and functional outcomes were examined among children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and these results support screening children with ADHD for EFDs to prevent academic failure. Expand
Young adult outcome of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a controlled 10-year follow-up study
TLDR
By their young adult years, ADHD youth were at high risk for a wide range of adverse psychiatric outcomes including markedly elevated rates of antisocial, addictive, mood and anxiety disorders. Expand
Functional impairments in adults with self-reports of diagnosed ADHD: A controlled study of 1001 adults in the community.
TLDR
Adults who reported having received a diagnosis of ADHD in the community had significant impairment in multiple domains of functioning compared with age- and gender-matched controls without this diagnosis, highly consistent with findings derived from carefully diagnosed referred samples. Expand
Gender effects on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity disorder in adults, revisited
TLDR
Findings in this study bear striking similarities to findings reported in pediatric samples, supporting the validity of ADHD and stressing the importance of identifying and treating the disorder in adulthood. Expand
Psychiatric comorbidity and functioning in clinically referred preschool children and school-age youths with ADHD.
TLDR
Despite being significantly younger, clinically referred preschool children with ADHD are reminiscent of school-age youths with ADHD in the quality of ADHD, high rates of comorbid psychopathology, and impaired functioning. Expand
New insights into the comorbidity between ADHD and major depression in adolescent and young adult females.
TLDR
MD emerging in the context of ADHD in females is an impairing and severe comorbidity worthy of further clinical and scientific considerations. Expand
Attention and executive systems abnormalities in adults with childhood ADHD: A DT-MRI study of connections.
TLDR
The demonstration of FA abnormalities in the CB and SLF II in adults with childhood ADHD provides further support for persistent structural abnormalities into adulthood. Expand
Are Girls with ADHD at Risk for Eating Disorders? Results from a Controlled, Five-Year Prospective Study
