• What is ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

    The incidence of ADHD in children is on the rise. Some data show that over 10% of children ages 5 -17 in the USA have the disorder. There is a concern that ADHD is being over diagnosed because of societal pressure for treatment of certain behaviours. But some experts say that ADHD is simply becoming more widely known, and with increased awareness, more children are diagnosed and getting the treatment they really need.
