Abstract

The incidence of the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, as established by surveys, has expanded from approximately 3% at the time I entered private practice in 1973, to recent survey results pointing to up to 11%-15%, of the childhood population, depending upon the location of the survey. The disorder was initially considered a childhood disorder which resolved itself in early adolescence. It has become increasingly apparent that it could in fact be a chronic disorder. Certainly this has been my experience, where I have seen persons for an initial assessment of this disorder when they had reached their seventies. What is apparent is that the severity of this condition ameliorates with time.
