ADHD, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is an increasingly common diagnosis for children aged 3-17 years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6 million children were diagnosed with ADHD between 2016 and 2019. While boys are slightly more likely to be diagnosed than girls, ADHD is becoming more commonly diagnosed in all children and adolescents, regardless of gender. As of 2013, almost 10% of adolescents in Tennessee had been diagnosed with ADHD. Both medication and behavior modification therapy can be effective adolescent ADHD treatments, but the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a combination of both.
