Clinicians might minimize the prevalence of behavioral disorders among mentally retarded people. Decreased attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are frequently reported in children with Down syndrome, yet the exact prevalence of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has not been clearly estimated in this population. The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of ADHD in children with Down syndrome and to emphasize the possible relationship between ADHD symptoms and… Expand
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders Symptomatology Among Individuals With Down Syndrome
The prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) among individuals with Down syndrome (DS) has been difficult to ascertain. This is because many of the phenotypic features of DS mayExpand
Psychopathology in Down Syndrome
The main aim of this section is to provide clinicians with a guide to the prevalence of psychopathologies, associated factors, and their treatment in children with Down syndrome (DS).Expand
Guanfacine Use in Children With Down Syndrome and Comorbid Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) With Disruptive Behaviors
TLDR
Children with Down syndrome and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with disruptive behaviors using the Aberrant Behavior Checklist (ABC) and the treatment effects of guanfacine on maladaptive behaviors were characterize and measured. Expand
Invariance of parent ratings of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms for children with and without intellectual disability
TLDR
Most of the ADHD symptoms can be valid for the assessment of ADHD in children with mild and moderate intellectual disability. Expand
Efficacy and safety of methylphenidate on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children with Down syndrome.
TLDR
Methylphenidate was effective and safe in treating ADHD in 76% of cases in children with DS, with few serious side effects to report. Expand

It is suggested that nontrisomy genetic factors may contribute to individual differences in ADHD symptoms in persons with DS. Expand
Gestational age is related to symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in late-preterm to full-term children and adolescents with down syndrome
TLDR
Results from this study show that gestational age is related to inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms in children and adolescents with Down syndrome, and should be addressed when considering symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Expand

Is there a relationship between attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and manic symptoms among children with mental retardation of unknown etiology?
TLDR
Manic symptoms and disruptive behaviors as well as ADHD symptoms were prevalent among children and adolescents with MR-UE and hyperactivity, and oppositional-defiant symptoms were predictors of manic symptoms in these patients. Expand
Symptoms of ADHD and their correlates in children with intellectual disabilities.
TLDR
It is suggested that ADHD/Hyperkinesis may be a valid psychiatric diagnosis for children with intellectual disabilities and a great deal more research is needed to explore the phenomenology of ADHD in intellectual disability and to develop an evidence base for psychosocial intervention. Expand
Patterns of behavioral adjustment and maladjustment in mental retardation: comparison of children with and without ADHD.
TLDR
Results are strongly suggestive of significant behavioral and emotional problems in children with ADHD and mental retardation, thus mirroring the pattern associated with ADHD in the general school-age population. Expand
Attention deficits, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and intellectual disabilities.
TLDR
A review of diagnostic controversies in ADHD with IDD is provided and several topics that are currently attracting research efforts in the field are discussed, including behavioral phenotyping and attempts to come to grips with problems of behavioral and etiological heterogeneity. Expand
Neurobehavioral disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults with Down syndrome
TLDR
It has been found it useful to distinguish conditions with a pre‐pubertal onset from those presenting in the post‐pupertal period, as these are biologically distinct periods each with a unique vulnerability to specific psychiatric disorders. Expand

TLDR
Children and adolescents with ID are at significantly increased risk of certain forms of psychiatric disorder, including conduct disorder, anxiety disorder, hyperkinesis and pervasive developmental disorders. Expand

TLDR
In adult samples, the differentiating role of comorbid syndromes in MR individuals is reduced for cognitive skills, and limited to some basic verbal abilities, more impaired in mood disorder, less in schizophrenic disorder. Expand

TLDR
The structure of the Reiss instrument was useful for cDS, distinguishing behaviors potentially related to medical problems from true psychopathology, and resulted in 24 families who chose parental guidance and 14 who chose professional referral. Expand
