About the book

Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a common neurobehavioral disorder in childhood with high global prevalence rates ranging from 5.3 to 7.2%, with an average of around 5%. This disorder is characterized by three groups of symptoms: inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Furthermore, their combination gives rise to three types of presentation of ADHD: inattentive presentation, hyperactive and impulsive presentation, and combined presentation. In this way, depending on the kind of presentation, more accurate recommendations will be made. In this sense, considering the high prevalence rates and their symptomatologic complexity, it is necessary to advance in the evaluation process (from an innovative perspective) as well as in the design of interventions adjusted to the needs of patients. For all these reasons, this book will include works that aim to advance the evaluation and intervention of ADHD to achieve a better prognosis.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
