An estimated 15 million individuals in America have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD. Without identification and proper treatment, ADHD may have serious consequences, including school failure, family stress and disruption, depression, relationship problems, substance abuse, delinquency, accidental injuries, and job failure. Early identification and treatment are extremely important. With identification, proper treatment and management, individuals with ADHD can lead successful lives and even thrive. Therefore, ADHD is diagnosed and treated at any age when it begins to negatively impact the patient at home, work or social settings.1
