Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood neurodevelopmental diseases and nearly two thirds of children with ADHD have symptoms that persist into adulthood. Approximately 750,000 children with special health care needs transition from pediatric to adult health care annually in the United States. For youth with ADHD, organized, coordinated, and systematic care transition from pediatric to adult health care providers is essential to prevent negative consequences related to unmanaged ADHD symptoms and to optimize health and promote maximum functioning. The Got Transition model's 6 core elements provide a guide to support successful transition for adolescents with ADHD.
