International Research

Many ADHD research projects have been undertaken overseas in the past which has improved our understanding of ADHD. Medical Researchers from a wide variety of countries continue to strive to understand ADHD and how better diagnosis, treatments and medications can assist those individuals living with ADHD. Each project contributes to the body of knowledge we have about ADHD.

Below is a summary of some of the research already published from those dedicated International Researchers.
