How can ADHD be overcome?

For a long time the model of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has been that it’s a neurodevelopmental disorder that starts in childhood. The expected course of ADHD has been that that about 50% of people with childhood ADHD, continue to have symptoms into adulthood. But a study from earlier this year found that only 10% of children completely grow out of ADHD. This video explains the progression of ADHD from childhood to adulthood.
