Everything I've read says children don't out grow it, they learn how to deal with it or keep it under control. This is the case with my two children with ADD and ADHD.
My understanding is that their brains are wired differently that a non-ADHD child's brain and that eventually most children figure out how to deal with their differences.
I too don't believe people with ADHD ever outgrow it, but instead learn to live with it. I can attest to two people learning how to live without medication or other means: my husband and my sister. Both had trouble in school focusing and staying still but as they grew older and understood more about how their brains work, they learned to adapt their ways and function as adults.
Yes. My son is now twenty one and in the military which worried me at first but he just got promoted and Im so proud of him.
