Study: Kids likelier to take ADHD drugs in school year
from USA Today
A new study finds that children are about 30 percent more likely to take a stimulant like Ritalin for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder during the school year than in the summer. According to researchers, kids from higher-income families living in states with stricter standardized testing and school accountability are much more likely to use the drugs only during the school year, compared with lower-income classmates in less demanding states.
