ADHD Can Persist Through Teenage Years

The conventional wisdom until the 1980’s was that that only young kids had ADHD and that children outgrew the disorder when they reached puberty. Now we know that ADHD is often a lifetime condition. Research has shown that about 60 percent of children diagnosed with ADHD continue to have symptoms through adolescence and into adulthood. Scientists haven’t found a cure for ADHD but with proper treatment the disorder doesn’t have to get in the way of pursuing one’s passions, living a happy life, and being successful in work.
