Undiagnosed and untreated ADHD frequently results in emotional difficulties. There are substantial risks for severe problems of substance abuse, anxiety, depression, and school failure, and the problems clearly interfere with academic achievement and career progress and can have long lasting and adverse affects on self-image and self-confidence.
A conservative estimate for the incidence of ADHD in the United States is about 3-5% of grade-school children, but some estimates run as high as 20%. It is more prevalent in boys than in girls with the ratio being about 3 to 1. In about 15-20% of the cases, symptoms persist into adulthood.
