Summary of "Diagnosis and Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Preschool-Aged Children."

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder defined as a persistent pattern of inactivity and/or hyperactivity that interferes with behavioral function or development. Diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in the preschool-aged population (children 3-5 years old) is more complicated compared with older children because of developmental and physiological differences. This article reviews the available literature regarding the challenges associated with ADHD diagnosis and treatment in preschool-aged children, as well as the unmet needs of preschool-aged children with ADHD.
