Deficits in executive function have been consistently demonstrated in adults with ADHD. Rating scales that measure executive deficits in relation to daily life are useful in assessing ADHD symptoms and in measuring responses to treatment, while neuropsychological testing can measure deficits in executive function that can cause additional impairment in adults with ADHD. Treatments, including psychosocial interventions and stimulant and nonstimulant medications, can be helpful in addressing these executive deficits and the symptoms of adult ADHD.
