Study: Inattention Decreases, Hyperactivity Increases in Most Preschool Students with ADHD

March 17, 2021One-quarter to one-third of preschool students with ADHD demonstrated decelerating inattention and increasing hyperactivity over the course of an academic school year, according to a new Journal of Attention Disorders study1 — one of the first studies of the developmental course of ADHD to incorporate teacher ratings and not rely exclusively on parent reports.
