"Mild symptoms are being diagnosed so readily, which goes well beyond the disorder and beyond the zone of ambiguity to pure enhancement of children who are otherwise healthy," he added. The data showed that 15 percent of school-age boys and 7 percent of girls had received an ADHD diagnoses . Among teens aged 14 to 17, about 19 percent of boys and 10 percent of girls had been diagnosed with ADHD .

While the rate of diagnosis has also increased for boys, it’ s been less significant (from 9 to 14 percent). In the study, it was hypothesized that the reason behind the increased differential is due to changes in how the disorder is diagnosed , as girls “often fail to demonstrate classic hyperactive The study found that black and Hispanic children are being diagnosed with ADHD at higher rates, which “might reflect increased access to care and decreased stigma in those communities.” While in the 1997, only 3.6 percent of Hispanic children were being diagnosed with ADHD , by 2016 that number

One in 10 U.S. children has been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to the latest federal data.

The findings, which were published Friday in JAMA Network Open, suggest that ADHD — which is characterized by consistent inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity — is being diagnosed more frequently than it was even two decades ago. About 6% of U.S. children ages 4 to 17 had been diagnosed with ADHD in 1997-1998, compared to 10.2% in 2015-2016, according to the paper.

Screen Time Is Making Your Kids Moody And Insane

  Screen Time Is Making Your Kids Moody And Insane The average child spends 7 hours a day looking at a screen, such as a video game, computer, cell phone, or television. That's a huge amount of time, especially when the recommended amount is 2 hours a day. In an article in Psychology Today, Dr. Victoria L. Dunckley — author of the book Reset Your Child's Brain — talks about how too much screen time can make a child or teen become both wired and tired. The child becomes agitated, and at the same time exhausted because of their screen time addiction, and they suffer academically, socially, and physically.

About 10 % of children in America are now being diagnosed with ADHD . Some of the increase may also be due to our changing expectations for children' s behavior, such as an increasing focus on academics. Questions have also been raised over the safety of medications used to treat ADHD . 'We are increasingly more academically, cerebrally, and intellectually focused than we were two, three, five decades ago,' he told MSNBC. 'And our requirements for kids to do well in school – having to sit still, stay focused, and attuned – have changed over time. I think the tolerance and threshold for saying a

One in every 10 U . S . children has been diagnosed with attention - deficit / hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD ), but the steady rise in cases has started to slow, a new government survey shows. Not every child with ADHD is getting proper treatment, the study found. According to the survey, 18 percent of kids with ADHD had not received either psychiatric counseling or drug therapy during 2011-2012. "This finding raises concerns about whether these children and their families are receiving needed services," Dr. Michael Lu, senior administrator at the U . S . Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA)

The researchers tracked these changes by analyzing data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), in which parents answer questions about their kids’ health. Over the 20-year study period, the NHIS collected ADHD data for about 186,500 children between ages 4 and 17.

The 2015-2016 responses reflected increases in reported ADHD diagnoses across demographics, compared to responses tabulated in 1997-1998. But the latest data also revealed a number of current disparities in diagnosis rates.

ADHD diagnoses were far more common among boys than girls in 2015-2016: 14% versus 6.3%. Diagnoses also got more common as age increased; 13.5% of kids ages 12 to 17 had a diagnosis, compared to 7.7% of kids ages 4 to 11. Finally, ADHD diagnoses were most common among black children (12.8%), followed by white (12%) and Hispanic (6.1%) children.

ADHD study links symptoms with digital media use

  ADHD study links symptoms with digital media use A new study on teens suggests that ADHD symptoms might be associated with engaging frequently in digital media activities, such as streaming video or using social media.  The study, published in the medical journal JAMA on Tuesday, sheds light on how more research is needed to determine whether symptoms of the disorder, commonly called ADHD, are possibly caused by digital media use.

Ten percent of U . S . kids have been diagnosed with attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD ), a big increase from 6 percent in 1998. Aug. 31, 2018, 10 :15 PM UTC. By Felix Gussone, MD. More than 10 percent of U . S . kids have been diagnosed with attention - deficit / hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD ), up from 6 percent 20 years ago, researchers reported Friday. It’ s not clear why, but it’ s startling, said Dr. Wei Bao of the University of Iowa, who helped lead the study.

This survey was conducted with parents of children 4–17 years of age who had ever been diagnosed with ADHD . Almost 9 out of 10 children had received school support, which includes school accommodations and help in the classroom. Danielson ML, Bitsko RH, Ghandour RM, Holbrook JR, Kogan MD, Blumberg SJ.

It’s not entirely clear why these disparities exist, or why ADHD diagnoses are on the rise overall. But the study suggests that heightened awareness of the condition and changing diagnostic criteria may partially explain the higher numbers. Better access to care and weakening stigmas around mental health care, particularly among minority populations, may have also led to more diagnoses, the authors write.

But other research has also suggested that environmental factors ranging from chemical exposure to maternal substance use may contribute to the development of ADHD, according to the paper. A separate JAMA study published in July also suggested that rampant technology use among U.S. adolescents may be contributing to rising ADHD rates.
