Dr. Russell Barkley
Addressing the Issues in the Transition
The nature of ADHD changes with age. So do the demands placed upon children as they enter adolescence and then on to adulthood. New settings, people, and opportunities more generally become available during these transitions that were not so for children. These also pose a new set of risks for people with ADHD and their families as they make these transitions. This presentation describes the various changes that take place in the nature of ADHD from childhood to adolescence and then to adulthood as well as in the new risks each transition poses for potential impairments in various major life activities that were not issues in childhood. Dr. Barkley will discuss ways that families can address these risks and issues to form better strategies to help children and young adults meet and cope with the challenges.

ADHD is now recognized as a relatively common mental disorder of teens and adults, affecting 4 to 5 percent of the adult population and accounting for an increasing number of referrals to mental health and family practices in this country. The disorder has a pervasive impact on most major domains of daily life activities, including occupational, educational, and social functioning and health-related behaviors. It is imperative that mental health, medical, and educational professionals have as much up-to-date knowledge of this adult disorder and its treatment as possible.
