The volume explores the impact of the disorder across a wide range of functional domains--behavior, learning, psychological adjustment, school and vocational outcomes, and health. All chapters conclude with user-friendly Key Clinical Points.

30-year period. Almost 30% of the children with ADHD were convicted of an offense (17% for a felony); the comparable rates in controls were 8.0 and 2.7%, respectively. Felony convictions, in particular, were much higher among the subjects with ADHD who had higher CD ratings in childhood. Kindergartners who are rated high in hyperactivity, antisocial behavior, and fearlessness are far more likely to be involved in deviant peer activities 12 years later than kindergartners who are only hyperactive

statistical adjustment for baseline psychopathology. However, during early adolescence, Biederman and colleagues (1997) found that progression from use to abuse, and from abuse to dependence, was accelerated in boys with ADHD. Also, psychoactive substance use disorders were related to the presence of CD but not ODD. Molina and colleagues (2013) found elevated rates of any substance use (beyond a single drink or cigarette), any substance use disorder, and number of substances used among the MTA
screening scale (La Malfa, Lassi, Bertelli, Pallanti, & Albertini, 2008); this is likewise about four or five times greater than the prevalence in general population samples. Among individuals with comorbid ID, ADHD symptoms are often more severe and appear to cohere with each other in ways not seen in individuals with ADHD only, they are less likely to remit with age (Xenitidis et al., 2010), and they may be linked to higher rates of aggressive behavior (Cooper et al., 2008). Objective measures
to a continuous variable results in a significant loss of validity when measuring that construct, and if so, can this loss of validity be justified by the utility of artificially dichotomizing the condition? In one study addressing this issue, Lahey and Willcutt (2010) compared categorical diagnosis to a continuous classification method based on symptom count to determine which performed better in predicting functional impairment and remaining stable over time. They found that the continuous
