The analytical approach employed in previous chapters of this book is based on two hypotheses with respect to individuals with ADHD. The first hypothesis states that individuals diagnosed with ADHD who are treated in the secondary health sector exhibit weaker performance than individuals who are prescribed with medication appropriate for ADHD in the primary health sector. The second hypothesis states that individuals diagnosed with ADHD or treated for ADHD as adults exhibit weaker performance than a similar group of adults diagnosed with ADHD or treated for ADHD in childhood. In this chapter, empirical support is presented for these hypotheses and thereby for the analytical approach adopted in this study.

Keywords:   treatment group, control group, performance difference, early diagnosis, late diagnosis
