Abstract

European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (2018) 27:821–822 https://doi.org/10.1007/s00787-018-1176-2 EDITORIAL 1,2 Alan Apter Published online: 5 June 2018 © Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature 2018 There is a widespread prevailing assumption that attention diagnostic status and implies that adult-onset and child-onset deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelop - ADHD may well be different entities. This is not readily mental disorder with a child onset that persists on through reconcilable with numerous reports of a familial associa- adulthood and is more common in males. For example, tion of offspring ADHD with parental ADHD or ADHD a meta-analysis found that severity of childhood ADHD, symptoms (e.g. Wesseldijk et al.
