More Than 10% US Kids are with ADHD as Diagnoses Skyrocket

A new study which showed that more than 10% US kids have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) suggests the cases have spiked among girls and some US minority groups in past few years.

Experts believe surge in confirmed ADHD cases among girls, older kids and Hispanics could be because of better screening among some previously under diagnosed groups. More than 5.5 million kids aged five to 17 years have the neurodevelopmental psychiatric disorder, as per the study which analyzed ADHD cases confirmed by parents from 2003 to 2011.
