ABSTRACT
The article focuses on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and juvenile delinquency. The diagnosis of ADHD includes a thorough clinical interview, a comprehensive history of academic, familial and interpersonal functioning and psychodiagnostic assessment. It cites the increased risk of children diagnosed with ADHD for serious antisocial behavioral problems later in life. The single most critical aspect in the treatment of ADHD is said to be early intervention. It is added that behavioral management can play a vital role in ADHD treatment.
