Adults with ADHD

Despite its prevalence, there are currently no standard guidelines in the U.S. for diagnosing and treating adults with ADHD. The result is a diversity of methods for diagnosis and treatment, including instances not based on evidence-based research.

To improve outcomes for all individuals with ADHD, APSARD’s initiative to develop and publish guidelines for adults with ADHD will address the critical need for consistent and accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
