   schema:reviewBody ""Clearly organized and comprehensive, this book juxtaposes data on children with ADHD followed into adulthood with data on newly diagnosed, clinic-referred adults. Groundbreaking information is presented on the significant impairments produced by the disorder across key functional domains and life activities, including education, occupational functioning, relationships, parenting, driving, criminality, and health behaviors. The authors explore the extent to which ADHD increases the risk of substance abuse and other co-occurring mental health conditions, as well as the influence on children's psychological adjustment of having a parent with ADHD. The implications of these findings for effective intervention are thoughtfully considered. The book also demonstrates that existing diagnostic criteria do not accurately reflect how ADHD is experienced by adults, and points the way toward developing better criteria that center on executive function deficits. Accessible tables, figures, and sidebars encapsulate the study results and thoroughly describe the methods used."--Jacket." ;
