The material in this presentation covers the results and conclusions from a systematic CER review entitled Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Effectiveness of Treatment in At-Risk Preschoolers; Long-Term Effectiveness in All Ages; and Variability in Prevalence, Diagnosis, and Treatment. It begins with an introduction to ADHD and treatment options. It also covers: methods used to plan and execute the systematic review; clinically important questions the review sought to answer; evidence-based conclusions about the effectiveness of ADHD treatments for preschoolers and individuals 6 years of age and older; unrated findings on adverse effects of ADHD treatments; unrated conclusions on variability in the prevalence, clinical identification, and treatment of ADHD associated with potential moderating factors; gaps in knowledge; and future research needs uncovered by the systematic review.
