This paper deals primarily with ADHD as it pertains to the child and adolescent, and discusses some of the problems that many of these individuals face when they attend school or other child and adolescent services, such as day care. The literature on the subject is reviewed. Areas of behavioral concern and other issues related to ADHD are also examined. Also presented is the methodology of the issue and how the study itself was conducted. The data analysis is explained as well. This analysis is at the heart of the study, and the hypotheses that were created are dealt with again in light of the information collected. Recommendations for future research into the area of ADHD and the child and adolescent are also provided.

From the Paper:

"The issue of ADHD is one that has been misunderstood for many years. There are individuals that study it and discuss how significant it is, and there are others that see it as some kind of made-up problem that is really not important enough to focus on. Both of these are valid points of view but, in recent years, it has generally been accepted that ADHD does exist, and that the study of it is important. Unlike standard medical problems, such as diseases that affect the body, ADHD is not something that can be 'cured,' as it is understood in the traditional sense."
