Misconceptions about ADHD abound.  Originally thought to be a disorder in young boys, scientific research has proven it exists equally in both genders, and is present throughout the life-span 67% of the time.  With what we know now in science, it’s time to get the truth and facts out.

The World Federation of ADHD, of which Dr. Faraone is current President, has published the International Consensus of 208 Conclusions about ADHD, its challenges and misunderstandings. Federation Members from around the world curated these findings with a strong evidence base. The empirically supported statements are approved by 80 authors from 27 countries on 6 continents, and also endorsed by 366 people who have read and agree with its content.

We’ll be reviewing major findings from this collaboration.  Join us as we learn the facts about ADHD, in children and adults, around the world.
