Executive function problems and treatment in children and adolescents with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder


Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder seriously affecting home, school, and social functioning of children and adolescent. In recent years, hypotheses have been revealed that the underlying cause of ADHD is related to executive function impairments. As a conse-quence of these hypotheses, executive dysfunctions shown in ADHD have started to be evalua-ted through both performance-based measures and scales based on parents and teachers. There are many methods for assessing executive function in ADHD. Also, there are several pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment approaches available in the treatment of executive function prob-lems among patients with ADHD. The aim of this article is to review the impact of executive function in ADHD and its treatment.
