Abstract

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has long been identified as a common disorder of childhood. There is increasing recognition that adults also are affected by this disorder. Many adults, however, are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed until their child is diagnosed with the disorder. Improved recognition and treatment for parental ADHD needs to occur given the genetic and environmental etiologies of the disorder. This paper examines three areas where there is a dearth of data in extant literature: parental ADHD culture and ethnicity; parenting and undiagnosed ADHD; and professional care and ADHD, and focuses on parents from ethnic minority cultures.
