Document Abstract:
Recent research supports the long-held belief that ADHD has an underlying neurological basis1. This biologically based behavioural disability has a pervasive negative impact on a wide-range of adaptive functioning2. Frontal lobe functions are executive in nature and are involved in developing plans, organising resources, controlling motor behaviour and inhibiting attentional focus on distractor or irrelevant stimuli2.
