from By: Rebecca Ryan
At the first sign of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — a messy backpack, fidgety in nature, slipping grades — boys are medicated with Ritalin, Adderall or a similar variation.

New statistics reveal the vast discrepancy between the number of males with diagnosed ADHD and the number of diagnosed females.
