ObjectivesTransition into adulthood is a risky period for young people with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but empirical studies on this topic are scarce. This study investigated the association between the level of ADHD symptoms and transition into adulthood.MethodsData were collected in the Cohort Study of Substance Use and Risk Factors among a representative sample of young Swiss men (n = 4681) over three waves. Measures included the level of ADHD symptoms and emerging… 
Childhood ADHD Symptoms in Relation to Trauma Exposure and PTSD Symptoms Among College Students: Attending to and Accommodating Trauma

The IJPH Special Issue on Adolescent Transitions presents new evidence on health issues emerging during teen years, and the ways in which these may progress over the life course. Findings support the
Multiple trajectories of alcohol use and the development of alcohol use disorder: Do Swiss men mature-out of problematic alcohol use during emerging adulthood?
TLDR
Maturing out of problematic AU in emerging adulthood is not the norm in Switzerland, and the AUD score developed in late adolescence remains until at least emerging adulthood, while AU on workweek days is a more practical marker of potentially problematic AU.
Association between hydroxycarbamide exposure and neurocognitive function in adolescents with sickle cell disease
TLDR
In patients with HbSS/HbSβ0 thalassaemia, longer treatment duration with hydroxy carbamide was associated with better verbal memory and reading and cognitive impairment may be mitigated by exposure to hydroxycarbamide in adolescents with SCD.

Long-term course of ADHD symptoms from childhood to early adulthood in a community sample
TLDR
In this high trajectory group, hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms decrease with age from 7 to 19 years, whilst inattention and total symptoms are stable, and there was no evidence for an increase in symptoms across childhood/adolescence in any of the severity groups.
Characteristics of ADHD in the Emerging Adult: an Overview
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a developmental disorder that persists into adulthood for many individuals. Research on the disorder, however, has largely focused on childhood or
Adolescent ADHD and Adult Physical and Mental Health, Work Performance, and Financial Stress
TLDR
Clinicians should focus on early diagnosis and treatment of adolescent ADHD because it is a major predictor of an array of physical, mental, work, and financial problems in adulthood.
Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Associations between subtype and lifetime substance use - a clinical study.
TLDR
The findings underscore the high rate of comorbidity between substance use and ADHD in adults and suggest that the more frequent abuse/dependence of cocaine by adult patients with hyperactive-impulsive symptoms should be kept in mind when treating this patient group.
Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Associations between subtype and lifetime substance use – a clinical study
TLDR
The more frequent abuse/dependence of cocaine by adult patients with hyperactive-impulsive symptoms should be kept in mind when treating this patient group, and the high rate of comorbidity between substance use and ADHD in adults is underscored.
Lost in transition: A review of the unmet need of patients with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder transitioning to adulthood
TLDR
The review suggests that the transition period to adult ADHD may be an underresearched and underserved area and further studies are needed to explore the characteristics of the Transition period.
Gender differences in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: A narrative review.
TLDR
How understanding the nature of the relation between gender and ADHD across the lifespan is complicated by a number of methodological difficulties is highlighted, and recommendations for how emerging research and clinical practice can better incorporate gender into the conceptualization of ADHD in adulthood are offered.
ADHD in children and young people: prevalence, care pathways, and service provision.
TLDR
The timely recognition and treatment of children with ADHD-type difficulties provides an opportunity to improve long-term outcomes, including educational underachievement, difficulties with employment and relationships, and criminality.
Childhood attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder as an extreme of a continuous trait: a quantitative genetic study of 8,500 twin pairs.
TLDR
The data suggest that ADHD is best viewed as the quantitative extreme of genetic and environmental factors operating dimensionally throughout the distribution of ADHD symptoms, indicating that the same etiologic factors are involved in the full range of symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.
Presenting ADHD symptoms, subtypes, and comorbid disorders in clinically referred adults with ADHD.
TLDR
Adults with ADHD have prominent inattentive symptoms of ADHD, necessitating careful questioning of these symptoms when evaluating these individuals, which can lead to a more persistent ADHD among adults.
