Objective: This study’s objective is to differentiate possible ADHD syndromes on the basis of symptom trajectories, prognosis, and associated clinical features in a high-risk cohort. Method: Latent class analysis of inattentive (IA) and hyperactive–impulsive (HI) symptoms in 387 non-disabled members of a regional low birthweight/preterm birth cohort who were evaluated for ADHD at 6, 9, and 16 years. Adolescent functional outcomes and other clinical features were examined across the classes… Expand
Maternal and family factors differentiate profiles of psychiatric impairments in very preterm children at age 5-years.
Lower levels of maternal distress, family dysfunction, and maternal ADHD symptoms were associated with resilience among VPT children, and Maternal distress and family dysfunction are modifiable factors to be targeted as part of psychiatric interventions embedded in the long-term care of V PT children.

Predictive value of dysregulation profile trajectories in childhood for symptoms of ADHD, anxiety and depression in late adolescence
An enduring high dysregulation profile in childhood showed some predictive value for psychological functioning 4 years later, which might be helpful in the preventive monitoring of children at risk. Expand
Executive and non-executive functions in low birthweight/preterm adolescents with differing temporal patterns of inattention
The PIA class displayed the poorest performance on executive functioning, which was exaggerated in the context of lower IQ, and the PIA and the SAL classes had poorer performance on non-executive functioning relative to the UA class. Expand
Exploring predictors at toddler age of distinct profiles of attentional functioning in 6-year-old children born moderate-to-late preterm and full term
Children at risk of poorer attentional functioning at school-age, expressed in distinct attention profiles, already showed differentiated functioning in attention abilities and in language comprehension as toddlers. Expand
Pre-Pregnancy Weight and Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Executive Functioning Behaviors in Preschool Children
Pre-pregnancy BMI at levels ≥35 was positively associated with higher ADHD symptoms and worse executive self-regulation behaviors (inhibitory control and attention), and a link between maternal weight and child neurodevelopment is supported. Expand
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
An account of the diagnosis, epidemiology, and treatment of ADHD from the perspective of both the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the eleventh editions of the International Classification of Diseases is provided. Expand
Behavioral and Socioemotional Development in Preterm Children.
Prematurity is a significant risk factor for impaired neurodevelopmental outcomes and early detection of behavioral and socioemotional problems in preterm children would enable timely early intervention to improve long-term functional outcomes. Expand
A transfer-learning approach for first-year developmental infant brain segmentation using deep neural networks
This paper proposes a transfer-learning approach based on convolutional neural network (CNN)-based image segmentation architecture, QuickNAT, to segment brain structures for newborns and 6-month infants separately, and demonstrates improved hippocampus segmentation performance via the approach in preterm infants.

Three-year latent class trajectories of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms in a clinical sample not selected for ADHD.
An ADHD rather than bipolar diagnosis prognosticates a better course of hyperactive/impulsive, but not inattentive, symptoms. Expand
Developmental trajectories of DSM-IV symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: genetic effects, family risk and associated psychopathology.
The development of parent-reported hyperactivity-impulsivity and inattention symptoms from childhood to adolescence is described and their associations with genetic factors, family risk, and later adjustment problems in early adulthood are studied. Expand
Latent class subtyping of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and comorbid conditions.
This population-based ADHD classification may help resolve the contradictory results presented in molecular genetic studies and allow inclusion of information about comorbidities to be quantitatively incorporated into genetic studies. Expand
Childhood trajectories of inattention and hyperactivity and prediction of educational attainment in early adulthood: a 16-year longitudinal population-based study.
Inattention rather than hyperactivity during elementary school significantly predicts long-term educational attainment, and children with attention problems, regardless of hyperactivity, need preventive intervention early in their development. Expand

It is suggested that the use of diagnostic modifiers specifying the numbers of I and HI symptoms could reduce heterogeneity and facilitate clinical intervention, prognosis, and research. Expand
Age-dependent decline of symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: impact of remission definition and symptom type.
These results indicate that differences in reported remission rates reflect the definition used rather than the disorder's course, and provide systematic support for the clinical observation that hyperactivity and impulsivity symptoms tend to decline at a higher rate than inattention symptoms.

The MTA at 8 years: prospective follow-up of children treated for combined-type ADHD in a multisite study.
Type or intensity of 14 months of treatment for ADHD in childhood does not predict functioning 6 to 8 years later, and early ADHD symptom trajectory regardless of treatment type is prognostic, implying that children with behavioral and sociodemographic advantage, with the best response to any treatment, will have the best long-term prognosis.

Behavioral Outcomes of Extremely Low Birth Weight Children at Age 8 Years
The findings of an increase in symptoms pertaining to Autistic and Asperger's disorders at school age agree with recent reports of others during early childhood and might improve child functioning and ameliorate parent and child distress. Expand
Psychopathology and social competencies of adolescents who were extremely low birth weight.
This study aims to explore and compare the levels of psychopathology in a regional cohort of ELBW infants and sociodemographically matched term controls as reported by teens and their parents to include both parent and teen self-report of behaviors. Expand
Autistic traits in children with ADHD index clinical and cognitive problems
Results suggest that increasing ASD symptomatology within ADHD is associated with a more severe phenotype in terms of oppositional, conduct and anxiety symptoms, lower full-scale IQ, working memory deficits and general motor problems. Expand
