6.4 million American children are diagnosed with ADHD

ADHD-Chalk-Board-1 Today, 6.4 million American children are diagnosed with ADHD, making it one of the most common and fastest growing childhood disorders. In fact, over the last 10 years, there has been a 42% increase in the number of school-aged children diagnosed. Despite its prevalence, it is still a widely misunderstood condition. For example, some people believe children will eventually grow out of ADHD. This is not always the case. It's estimated that 70% of children with ADHD will continue to have it into adolescence while 50% will continue to experience symptoms in adulthood. While ADHD can't be cured, it can be successfully managed.
