Will my child outgrow attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (attention deficit disorder)?

In the past, doctors believed that it was possible for some children to outgrow it. Most have changed that viewpoint and now believe that the child manages to compensate for their ADD/ADHD in such a way that they no longer fit the criteria for a diagnosis. Studies have indicated that only fifty percent of children on medication for ADD/ADHD continue it into adulthood, but this is in no way an indication that these adults no longer have the condition.
