Divided Attention: Kids with ADHD can become adults with ADHD and other problems

By Logan Lafferty

“In the past, we thought that ADHD was a childhood disease, but we conducted this study because it gradually became clear to the pediatricians and family practice doctors at Mayo Clinic that some proportion of children and adolescents with ADHD might carry the characteristics of the disease into adulthood,” explains Dr. Robert Colligan, psychology professor emeritus at Mayo Clinic who is one of the authors of the results of the study published inPediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
