ADHD Rates Soar in U.S. Kids: Study
Date:11/10/2010

icine, said parent-reported studies make it hard to ascertain true figures.

Whether the number of children with ADHD is actually increasing or whether the increase is a product of increased awareness isn't known, Brosco said.

"I don't know and I don't think anyone can really tell you based on this study," he said. "There is no doubt that over the last 30 to 40 years we have become much more sensitive to behavioral differences," Brosco said. "Whether there is truly a change -- whether kids in the 1970s are really different from kids in the '90s or the 2000s -- there's not any way to tell that."
