We used data from a large, longitudinal study of children in the community, the NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development, to examine how well earlier measures of delay capacity, inhibitory control, planning, and attention predicted symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessed in third grade. Children with elevated symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity (n = 57) and with inattentive symptoms only (n = 80) were identified via mother and… 
Trajectories of Executive Functions and ADHD Symptoms in Preschoolers and the Role of Negative Parental Discipline
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest that, while EF and ADHD symptoms are related, they develop independently across the preschool years.
Neuropsychological deficits in preschool as predictors of ADHD symptoms and academic achievement in late adolescence
TLDR
Investigating whether neuropsychological deficits in preschool are related to later ADHD symptoms and academic achievement, over and above the influence of early ADHD symptom levels suggests that interventions need to look beyond executive functioning deficits in ADHD and also target the role of emotional functioning and reaction time variability.
Preschool Neuropsychological Measures as Predictors of Later Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The present study examined preschool neuropsychological measures as predictors of school-age attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Participants included 168 children (91 males) who
Impulsivity as Early Emerging Vulnerability Factor—Prediction of ADHD by a Preschool Neuropsychological Measure
TLDR
The impulsivity measure for preschool children showed good concurrent and predictive validity and can be useful for the early identification of children at risk for developing ADHD and externalizing disorders.
Practitioner Review: Assessment and treatment of preschool children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
  • J. Halperin, D. Marks
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
Acute treatments have demonstrable efficacy, but do not appear to fundamentally alter underlying mechanisms or long-term trajectories of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in preschool children.
Neuropsychological Functioning and Attachment Representations in Early School Age as Predictors of ADHD Symptoms in Late Adolescence
TLDR
The findings showing that disorganized attachment is longitudinally related to ADHD symptoms over and above the influence of both neuropsychological functioning and early ADHD symptom levels highlights the importance of including measures of attachment representations when trying to understand the development of ADHD symptoms.
Perceptual and Response-Dependent Profiles of Attention in Children With ADHD
TLDR
Based on combined assessment of perceptual and response-dependent variables of attention, the present study demonstrates a specific cognitive profile in children with ADHD that distinguishes the disorder at a basic level of attentional functioning, and may define subgroups of children with hyperactivity in a way that is more sensitive than clinical rating scales.
Planning Deficits in Children With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): A Meta-Analytic Review of Tower Task Performance
TLDR
Although aggregated findings suggest that children with ADHD, compared with typically developing children, exhibit moderate planning deficits, researchers and clinicians are advised to consider the findings of significant participant and task moderating variables when interpreting children’s performance on tower tasks.
Parenting Predictors of Delay Inhibition in Socioeconomically Disadvantaged Preschoolers.
TLDR
Analysis of longitudinal associations between specific parenting factors and delay inhibition in socioeconomically disadvantaged preschoolers suggests that parental language that modulates the amount of autonomy allotted the child may be an important predictor of early delay inhibition skills.
Childhood predictors of adolescent and young adult outcome in ADHD.
TLDR
SES and IQ emerge as potential moderators for the prognosis of ADHD, and Childhood severity of ADHD symptoms, as measured by parent ratings and actigraph movement intensity, also predicts later ADHD outcome.

Few Preschool Boys and Girls with ADHD are Well-Adjusted During Adolescence
TLDR
Even when their ADHD symptoms improved over time, most probands exhibited significant impairment 7–8 years after their initial assessment, and only a minority of children with ADHD was well-adjusted in adolescence when emotional, behavioral, and social domains were considered simultaneously.
Predictors of persistence and remission of ADHD into adolescence: results from a four-year prospective follow-up study.
TLDR
Familiality, adversity, and psychiatric comorbidity may be clinically useful predictors of which children with ADHD are at risk for a persistent disorder.
Differential Patterns of Executive Function in Children With Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder According to Gender and Subtype
TLDR
The absence of diagnosed comorbidity in the children with ADHD at the time of test administration demonstrates that the impairments in executive function are clearly located in ADHD, particularly in the ADHD combined subtype, thus providing support for Barkley's proposed unifying theory of ADHD.
Do executive deficits and delay aversion make independent contributions to preschool attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms?
TLDR
Preschool ADHD symptoms are psychologically heterogeneous and executive dysfunction and delay aversion may represent two distinct and early appearing neurodevelopmental bases for ADHD symptoms.
Teacher ratings of DSM-III-R symptoms for the disruptive behavior disorders.
TLDR
Teacher ratings obtained for 931 boys in regular classrooms in grades K through 8 from around North America revealed that several hallmark symptoms of ADHD had very poor predictive power, whereas combinations of symptoms from the two ADHD factors had good predictive power.
Are Planning, Working Memory, and Inhibition Associated With Individual Differences in Preschool ADHD Symptoms?
TLDR
Specific deficits in inhibitory control rather than general EF deficits are associated with ADHD in the preschool period, supporting the idea that ADHD is better seen as a continuum rather than a discrete category.
Boys' externalizing problems at elementary school age: Pathways from early behavior problems, maternal control, and family stress.
Hard-to-manage preschool boys and comparison boys were studied at age 4 years and followed at ages 6 and 9 years. Externalizing problems at ages 4 and 9 were associated with concurrent family stress,
DSM-IV field trials for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The results support the decision to subdivide the heterogeneous category of DSM-III-R attention deficit hyperactivity disorder into three subtypes and the resulting DSM-IV definition appears to be somewhat less biased toward the symptom pattern typical of elementary school boys.
