The research findings presented in this thesis have identified early risk factors, potential causal pathways and early markers for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), including the significant burden experienced by non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal children and adolescents diagnosed and treated for ADHD through primary school and in the juvenile justice system. It also identified the mental health burden of parents and multiple co-morbidities in their child with ADHD, where medication use can reduce family strain. These results may help all those involved in the diagnosis and treatment of children, adolescents and youth with ADHD, including educators and policy makers.
