ADHD Awareness Week
*Do You or Someone You Love Have ADHD?*

4 to 7 million children (5-9% of the population) and 9 to 13 million adults (4-6% of the population) in the U.S. have Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Abundant scientific research has led every mainstream medical, psychological, and educational organization in the United States to conclude long ago that ADHD is a real neurological disorder.

The American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, National Institute of Mental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Psychiatric Association, American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, and the U.S. Department of Education, among others, recognize ADHD as a legitimate diagnosis.

Research shows that ADHD is the result of an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Its primary symptoms are inattention, impulsiveness, and, sometimes, hyperactivity.
