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.
