    ADHD Classified into 3 Types Based on Kids' Personalities - Live Science

    The new findings "set the stage" for improving the classification of mental-health disorders, the researchers said.

    If the existence of these three types is confirmed by future research, "it has a lot of implications for targeting interventions more directly to the kids who are most at risk" of developing future problems, said study researcher Sarah Karalunas, an ADHD researcher at Oregon Health & Science University.

    The new study is published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.
