Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

New England CEPAC

Diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have risen in recent years, and ADHD is now regarded to be a common condition among children in the United States.  While reported prevalence ranges widely between 6-16% depending on location and measurement technique, it has been estimated that ADHD affects at least 5 million children aged 4-17 years in the U.S.  Given the substantial burden of ADHD for children and their families, as well as the significant longterm implications that a diagnosis of ADHD carries, there is significant interest on the part of patients, clinicians, policymakers, and other stakeholders in exploring different management options for ADHD.
