ADHD – A Major Childhood Health Issue, December 2013

    With about 6.4 million U.S. children diagnosed with A.D.H.D., it is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of children, according to the CDC. And, Missouri is #2 only to Mississippi in the percentage of children taking medication to treat it. These rates reflect a significant rise over the last decade and draw concern among some medical professionals who believe A.D.H.D. diagnosis and its medication treatments are overused in American children. However, many parents and children tout the life-changing benefits of medical treatments. This episode explores this issue with interviews from parents, teachers, doctors and experts.
