Natural History of ADHD in a Population-based Sample

This five-year project examined adolescent outcomes of a population-based sample of individuals who had been diagnosed with ADHD five to six years earlier. This study represented the largest follow-up of a community-based sample of children with ADHD that has ever been conducted. The questions addressed included long-term academic and behavioral outcomes for children with ADHD and whether this is moderated by gender, race and the receipt of treatment.
