School entry age may impact risk of ADHD diagnosis
from Medical News Today
The age at which a child starts school may influence their likelihood of being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, suggests a new study in The Journal of Pediatrics. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is estimated to affect around 6.4 million children aged 4-17 in the U.S., making it one of the most common childhood conditions. ADHD is characterized by poor attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. It is most commonly diagnosed at the age of 7, and boys are more likely to be diagnosed with the condition than girls.
