ADHD Diagnosis Increasing in California

Early Diagnosis = Effective Treatment

According to new research from a large CA health plan, more children are being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) now than were a decade ago.  Researchers found the proportion of five- to 11-year-olds diagnosed with ADHD increased from 2.5 percent in 2001 to 3.1 percent in 2010.

Parents’ awareness is very important in ADHD.  Timely diagnosis of the disease is very important so the treatment is effective.  If you diagnose the child early when the disease occurs, the child may function better in school and also socially.

If you think your child may displaying symptoms of ADHD, please consult your family physician.  Experienced therapists at ISIS Healthcare will be here to help, if you should need their expertise.
