Overview: That childhood ADHD predisposes to increased risks for impairment in

educational, family, peer, and eventual occupational functioning by young adulthood, among many

other major domains of life activities is well established in research. Less appreciated is

that the disorder also predisposes to increased health, medical, and dental risks, such as an

increased risk for accidental injuries across the lifespan. And ADHD also predisposes to

certainly personality traits and lifestyle choices that have a significant impact on these

health related factors.

Such risks and impairments are known to influence estimated life expectancy. This lecture

describes the various domains of major life activities that have been found to be significantly

impaired in children growing up with ADHD by their young adult years. It will show that ADHD

adversely affects health outcomes and that such outcomes may have a detrimental impact on

estimated life expectancy by young adulthood. The implications of these findings for

alterations in ADHD management will also be discussed.

Why should you Attend: Participants will be better able to understand the various and numerous

domains of major life activities that childhood ADHD may impair across development. You are

likely to be surprised to learn just how widespread the impairments association with untreated

ADHD are likely to be, making it among the more impairing outpatient disorders treated in

clinics. These psychological, educational, social, and occupational impairments have

significant implications for life courses and intervention and are well understood.

But participants will also learn about the more recent findings concerning the various health

and medically related domains that are also at risk for impairment when childhood ADHD goes

untreated until adulthood. This will permit those attending to better appreciate the potential

impact ADHD may have on both healthy years and total years of life expectancy as a consequence

of these health related impairments. These new discoveries come from research that is still “in

press” and thus allow participants to be as current as possible in understanding mortality risk

and life expectancy in patients having ADHD.

Those attending will also learn the implications of these findings for improving management of

ADHD across the life span. Evidence will show that ADHD is not only a mental health problem but

a public health problem. You don’t want to miss out of these cutting edge findings and their

implications for the clinical management of patients with ADHD.
