Did you know that about 11 percent of children in school and 4 percent of adults suffer from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder? Out of those 11 percent of school-aged children, only 70 percent of them take medication for it, and the number of adults who take medication for their ADD/ADHD is slowly rising. Recently, the Washington Post created a graphic that goes into more details about the brain signals that are affected by ADHD.
You can view more on The Washington Post, including how ADHD medication works to boost the brain’s ability to pass signals. If you see some of these ADHD symptoms in you, don’t hesitate to contact us at Holiner Psychiatric Group or contact your nearest mental health facility.
