Dental Care for Children With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
ConclusionThe large proportion of children exhibiting elevated ADHD symptoms, and the increase in clinical contact time required in this subgroup to achieve successful fluency outcomes, is suggestive of the need for clinicians to tailor stuttering intervention to address these concomitant behaviour challenges. Findings support the use of careful caseload management strategies to account for individual differences between children, and strengthen prognostic information available to parents and clinicians.
CONCLUSION: Our population-based study identified a wide range of factors associated with short and long sleep at different life stages. This may have implications for interventions aimed at promoting healthy sleep duration. PMID: 30430815 [PubMed - in process]

Stimulant drugs used for treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) increase signal-detection accuracy in five-choice serial reaction-time procedures. These increases may result from drug-induced increases in control exerted by the stimuli th...
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a set of behaviors that is common in children, leading to an inability to concentrate or sit still. It can also occur in adults. Read on to learn about the different specifiers for ADHD, treatments, and research into the possible causes.
CONCLUSIONS: Better education and awareness are necessary to help ASD children and their families. Pharmacists should explore opportunities to provide better services.

ConclusionsSubgroups of youths can be identified that differ both in quantitative and qualitative aspects of emotion recognition abilities. Weak emotion recognition abilities across sensory domains are linked to an increased risk for ASD as well as ADHD, although emotion recognition impairments alone are neither necessary nor sufficient parts of these disorders.
CONCLUSIONS: We identified an aberrant structural brain connectivity pattern, involving temporoparietal hypoconnectivity, in prematurely born adolescents with attentional problems. We also identified birth weight as a potential neonatal predictor of the temporoparietal hypoconnectivity. These findings add to our understanding of the neural basis and etiology of inattention in adolescents after premature birth.

Drug treatment is the most prevalent method used to control and cure it; however, considering the low efficacy and frequent side effects of current drugs, more attempts is needed to replace them with safer agents. Several studies have shown the beneficial role of micronutrients such as vitamin D in development and improving the...
Jack Parker Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder, which is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive behaviors. In particular, children have difficulty keeping still exhibiting increased fine and gross motor activity. This paper focuses on analyzing the data obtained from two tri-axial accelerometers (one on the wrist of the dominant arm and the other on the ankle of the dominant leg) worn during school hours by a group of 22 children (11 children with ADHD and 11 paired controls). Five of the 11 ADHD diagnosed children were not on medication during the...
