In the United States, 11% of children aged 4-17 (almost 7 million children) have been diagnosed with ADHD. Most of the diagnosed—about 70%—are never treated. ADHD is not a discipline problem. It is a medical condition that presents as a set of symptoms with a range of possible underlying causes unique to each child. It is a genetically-caused neurological disorder that can be controlled with brain-assisting drugs. But to really heal, your ADHD child needs individualized treatment to uncover and correct a unique pattern of deficiencies and excesses that affect the brain and trigger symptoms.
