Abstract

Reflecting on the accompanying article by Jans et al., we draw the following thoughts. Future research on multiplex ADHD families is needed to elucidate mechanisms, timing, and a sequencing of interventions, preferably in treatment naïve participants. Furthermore, in addition to symptom measures, it is likely that multi-informant measures of functional impairments such as parenting and parent-child observations may help elucidate the complex mechanisms linking maternal and child ADHD, and eventually lead to more targeted, efficient, and feasible prevention and intervention strategies.
