Left untreated, it isn’t bright

“The Effects Of Childhood ADHD On Adult Labor Market Outcomes” issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research and authored by Jason Fletcher of Yale provides a detailed analysis of the affects ADHD has on adult labor market outcomes.

The author used data stemming from the 1990s through today. This longitudinal study shows that left untreated, ADHD children who carry their symptoms to adulthood are employed 10% to 14% less of the time than their peers. They earn about 33% less and require social assistance 15% more frequently.

Other studies have reached similar conclusions. Additionally, substance abuse and increased crime rates have also been attributed to non-treated ADHD.
