For the majority of children, the frequency of hyperactive symptoms decreased or remained low from 2 to 7 years. However, 7 children in 100 were classified as having high initial levels of hyperactive symptoms that persisted over time. Several prenatal and early postnatal risk factors identified these children, although additional variables will need to be identified to accurately predict high and persistent hyperactivity. Findings suggest that preventive interventions could target high-risk families during pregnancy and early childhood.
