Twenty-two adults (above 18 years old) were diagnosed with ADHD.xecutive functions of those cases were compared with 20 matched normaldults without ADHD through the three instruments of Tower of London (TOL),ontinuous Performance Test (CPT) and Stroop test.esults. Performance of cases was weaker than control group in TOL spe-ially in planning time (mean = 5.02 2.98,P&lt; 0.023) and number of movementmean = 2.31 0.65,P&lt; 0.001) of Level 2. Also in CPT, the ADHD adults madeore errors with significant difference in the variable of commission errors com-</p><p>ared with normal adults (mean = 5.29 15.6, P&lt; 0.07).

In general, our results indicate a pattern of cognitive profile fordults with ADHD similar to children affected by the same disorder.</p><p>ttp://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.neurenf.2012.04.660</p><p>e-P-3017</p><p>12-month prospective, observational study of changes inunctional outcomes in children and adolescents prescribedharmacological treatment for attention deficityperactivity disorder</p><p>.

In comparison with the mothers of normal children, the mothers of chil-ren with ADHD showed significantly different results in the parenting stress andarenting efficacy. In parenting behavior, the mothers of children with ADHDerceived their mother as more neglectful.
