If you have a child who’s been diagnosed with ADHD, you may be facing a decision whether to try medication. Stimulant medications have been shown repeatedly to be the most effective treatment for the symptoms of ADHD, helping kids pay attention, concentrate, manage their impulses, and avoid risky behaviors. About 80 percent of kids who try stimulant medications for ADHD find that they have a positive effect on symptoms. To put that in perspective, there is no other medication for a psychiatric condition that has such a high response rate.

And finally business is starting to use this information to its advantage.
UCD are looking for parents of children with infants who are from 10 months old up to 60 months old to get involved in our new babylab study at UCD. This study looks at how attention develops in the context of everyday life. We are looking for families with and without a history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This means that we want both children who have an older sibling and/or parent with an ADHD diagnosis as well as families with no known history of ADHD.
