Description:

This learning program is designed to introduce attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is the most common behavioral disorder in people under the age of 18. Although the disorder is often first diagnosed in childhood, it may continue over a person’s lifespan and cause serious issues in their academic, personal, and professional lives. This program describes the historical and current understanding of ADHD, the characteristic signs and symptoms of the disease, and how these signs and symptoms fit into the most recent diagnostic criteria used today. An overview of the prevalence, risk factors, and socioeconomic impact of ADHD is also provided, and the pathophysiology of ADHD and of the brain areas thought to be involved are reviewed.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • List the signs and symptoms of ADHD.
  • Outline the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.
  • Explain the social and economic impact of ADHD over the lifespan of a patient.
  • Describe the prevalence and risk factors for ADHD.
  • Describe the common comorbid disorders associated with ADHD.
  • Summarize the neurobiological etiology of ADHD.
