Discontinued treatment of ADHD could impact emotional, social well-being, study finds
Our take: Giving the best life for your children is important. A recent study suggests that stopped ADHD treatment could cause severe social and emotional damages, but was this study flawed? Lara Salahi from ABC News analyzes the study:
"Young boys who discontinue treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are featured in a new study that many experts say highlights the importance of proper and continued treatment.
An average of 9 percent of children ages 4 to 17 are diagnosed with ADHD each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Considered one of the most common childhood disorders, the condition is defined by over-activity, and difficulty focusing and controlling impulsive behaviors."
