ADHD usually emerges in the first years of life, but diagnosis is more frequently established in early-mid school years. The understanding of the first manifestations of the disorder, possible developmental pathways of these manifestations, and early recognition, can have significant impact over the lives of individuals. Moreover, diagnosis and treatment as early as possible in the preschool years, as well as identification of other concurrent neurodevelopmental problems, can alleviate the cumulative impairments that characterize the trajectories of individuals with ADHD. This presentation will focus on recent findings on early manifestation, concurrent and sequential comorbid problems, diagnosis and treatment during preschool years.
