ARGOLLO, Nayara. Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder: neusopsychological aspects. Psicol. Esc. Educ. (Impr.) [online]. 2003, vol.7, n.2, pp.197-201. ISSN 2175-3539.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, characterized by poor sustained attention, diminished impulse control and excessive physical activity, is found in most cultures and most countries. The goal of this paper is to make a review about the literature. The conclusions were that pharmacotherapy in conjunction with individual and family therapy is generally accepted as the most effective treatment, while psychostimulants are the drugs of choice. Indication of psychotherapy is discussed. The need for careful diagnosis and patient management is emphasized.
