By: Brittney Dunkins
Diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD—the most-diagnosed mental disorder among U.S. children—continues to rise, according to a report published Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.
ADHD diagnosis among U.S. children ages 5 to 17 increased 43 percent between 2003 and 2011, according to the report, “Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Parent-reported Diagnosis of ADHD.”
The jump equates to 5.8 million—or nearly 1 in 10—children and young adults in the United States with ADHD.
