However, so far there is no conclusive evidence that these standard drug treatments also improve long-term academic, social, and clinical outcomes.

In high school, though I was in a lot of higher-level classes, I always felt like I was working harder than anyone else. Reading took much longer for me, it seemed. I'd read a paragraph and think, "I have no clue what I just read." I'd skip ahead, never read directions, and make a lot of careless mistakes.

Working out the genetic risk for ADHD
Genetics play a strong part in the development of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but the path from a gene to risk for the disorder has remained a black box to researchers.. a new study suggests how the risk gene ADGRL3 (LPHN3) might work. ADGRL3 encodes the protein latrophilin 3, which regulates communication between brain cells. According to the study, a common variation of the gene associated with ADHD disrupts its ability to regulate gene transcription - the formation of mRNA from DNA that leads to expression of the gene.
