Details

ADHD is a common neuropsychiatric disorder, estimated to affect 7.2% of school age children worldwide and 11% in the US. The presence of the disorder is often not detectable until school workload increases, and it has a significant impact on child and adolescent development, health, education, and family situations. There is evidence of a wide variability in clinicians’ ability to diagnose ADHD, suggesting opportunities for improvement and a gap in care that might be remedied by CME.
