It is time to modernize the concept of ADHD!

Barbara Franke


People with ADHD in our society struggle, and they often report that they experience a lack of full acceptance in society. The realization that the current situation is suboptimal for individuals with ADHD and for society as a whole leads to a call of researchers, clinicians, and people with lived experience and their families for a modernized concept of ADHD. This new concept should take the discourse on ADHD to the next level: from a limited, symptom- and impairment-driven paradigm to a dynamic model that acknowledges ADHD’s heterogeneity and integrates weaknesses and strengths, focused on individual trajectories in functioning and self-management.

We hope you enjoy the full editorial of this Issue, which is free on the Wiley Online Library.
