 ADHD in the News 2019-11-14

The update to the clinical practice guidelines is the first since 2011, and changes focus on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD in children aged 4 to 18 years. Although there are no major changes to how ADHD is managed, the guidelines highlight the need to address issues that the child may be experiencing outside of ADHD, such as learning and language disorders, anxiety, depression, and autism.
