Melbourne study finds primary school kids missing out on ADHD treatment and support

This study analysed data from a longitudinal community-based study of primary school-aged children to identify those meeting diagnostic criteria for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tracked these children from 7 to 10 years of age to examine the proportion treated with medication; predictors of medication use; and the association between medication use and use of psychological services.
