"The current body of research suggests that attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) negatively affects multiple aspects of social functioning; however, limited research exists that differentiates between individuals with different presentations of ADHD. There is particularly limited research with adolescents, given their specific ADHD presentation, according to the criteria in most recent version of the criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health, Fifth Edition (DSM-V) by the American Psychological Association (APA) in 2013, that expanded the diagnosis to adolescence and adulthood. The present study examined three domains of social functioning: Social skills, adaptability, and leadership between adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder - Inattentive presentation (ADHD-I) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder - Combined presentation (ADHD-C). Proper treatment modalities based on the specific ADHD presentation could then be identified. Statistical analyses were performed with BASC-2 and BASC-3 parent report and teacher report scores obtained from archival data from 2006 - 2018 with adolescents between the ages of 10 and 17. Hypotheses stated that there would be a statistically significant difference between adolescents with ADHD-I and ADHD-C on the measures of social functioning of adaptability, leadership, and social skills; and that adolescents with ADHD-C would score statistically significantly lower. Small sample size was a limitation. Results were not conclusive across all three measures to support the hypotheses; however significant differences were found between parent report scores and teacher report scores for the individual measures of adaptability and leadership"--Page 7.

Long considered a standard in the field, the first edition of HYPERACTIVE CHILDREN GROWN UP explored what happens to hyperactive children when they grow to adulthood. Based on the renowned McGill prospective studies--research that now spans more than 30 years--the volume reports findings on the etiology, treatment, and outcome of attention deficits and hyperactivity at all stages of development. Updating and expanding upon a classic, this second edition includes entirely new chapters that describe: * New developments in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) * Current psychological treatments for ADHD * Contemporary perspectives on the use of medications * Assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD adults Providing complete developmental analysis of symptoms as they are displayed from infancy through adolescence, the book shows how the disorder is manifested and what happens during treatment at different stages. It examines the adult lives of the study's subjects taking into account all aspects of behavior including work record, drug and alcohol abuse, self-esteem, antisocial behavior, values, and family life. Covering predictive factors related to adult outcome, chapters examine the child's physical and mental status at referral, characteristics of the child's family, and the results of treatment at different stages. In a section of unusual interest, chapters report how adults view the treatment they received as youngsters, and the factors they found most helpful or harmful as they matured. In one first-person account, an individual describes with candor and poignancy his experiences growing up with this disorder and what is was like being a subject in a long-term follow-up study. The new section in this Second Edition begins with a post script by the same individual in which he shares his adult experiences, feelings, and how he has met the various challenges posed by ADHD. In addition to aforementioned topics, new chapters summarize recent research on genetic transmission, neurobiological aspects, and the importance of coexistence of other conditions in ADHD. The latest findings on the efficacy of such psychosocial treatments as behavior modification, parent training, social skills intervention, academic skills training and remediation, and individual psychotherapy are discussed, and a multimodal approach is described in detail. Bringing a masterwork completely up to date, HYPERACTIVE CHILDREN GROWN UP, SECOND EDITION will be valued by a wide array of professionals. Its empirical and methodological rigor will be valued by researchers, and its clinical observations provide clinicians with richer appreciation of treatment practices for the ADHD child, adolescent, and adult. The book is also of interest to teachers, parents of children with ADHD, and adults who continue to have the disorder.

The strategies to attenuate the symptoms act like “glasses for the brain”, helping with concentration and controlling fidgetiness.

That means they still need glasses and should know about the resources available for them as grown-ups. Relying on the latest research in the field, this book is an indispensable guide for all those who want to understand and find tools to better cope with ADHD. Accessible and packed with illuminating testimonials, it takes the reader step by step through the clinical symptoms, diagnostic approach and pharmacological treatments available for this neurodevelopmental problem. Thoroughly practical, this guide is also a treasure trove of practical tips and tricks to help adolescents and adults affected by ADHD to develop effective adaptive strategies to deal with the challenges they face from day to day.

"In a discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. They add, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Wender and Tomb offer practical, comprehensive instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child. Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding"--

The only book that covers the multiple ways in which ADHD is complicated by other psychiatric and learning disorders in both children and adults, ADHD Comorbidities: Handbook for ADHD Complications in Children and Adults features comprehensive, research-based information on ADHD and its full range of coexisting syndromes. Contributing researcher-clinicians, familiar with the complications that additional disorders pose, summarize in accessible language what is currently known about ADHD and its comorbidities, from preschool age to adulthood. These authors describe how ADHD leads to different profiles at different stages of development and how to adjust treatment strategies for both ADHD and additional disorders to reduce the impairments resulting from their combination. The book offers a new paradigm for understanding ADHD, viewing it not as a simple behavior disorder but as a complex developmental impairment of executive functions in the brain. This important handbook gives developmental context to ADHD by describing how symptoms at preschool onset differ from those of older age at onset. Clinicians will find practical help for patients whose ADHD appears in conjunction with 11 other syndromes -- from mood disorders to developmental coordination disorder -- and acquire valuable guidance on adapting and adjusting medications and other interventions to optimize treatment effects for the wide diversity of complex cases that embody ADHD.

Adolescents (ages 12-20) with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at risk for academic problems, strained relationships, peer rejection and unsafe behavior -- and parents are often at a loss for how to handle these challenges. If Your Adolescent Has ADHD: An Essential Resource for Parents provides the up-to-date information and down-to-earth support that parents need. It offers an in-depth look at causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and parenting strategies. Contrary to what was once believed, ADHD that starts earlier in childhood usually persists into the teen years. Yet even experienced parents are often caught unawares by the fresh challenges that adolescence brings. This book is one of the few to address ADHD in the context of teen friendships, dating, curfews and sports and extracurricular activities. It also offers practical advice from a leading psychologist on determining readiness to drive and instilling good homework and study habits. This book is a readable, reliable guide to evidence-based treatments for ADHD including behavioral therapy, medications, and educational interventions. Some approaches, such as school-based mentoring, have been little discussed in other parenting books. The authors also offer effective behavioral strategies that can be used at home, including communication and negotiation, problem solving, rewards, strategic punishments and behavioral contracts; and advice for older adolescents on dealing with college, work, and moving away from home.

Readers will learn not only research-based and traditional approaches for treating ADHD, but also proven newer and alternative methods.
