The ADHD Explosion

Credit Oxford University Press

Stephen Hinshaw and Richard Scheffler define "ADHD Explosion" and its results.

Many parents have wondered why there seem to be so many cases of ADHD, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, being diagnosed in America today. 

One in nine children are diagnosed with ADHD, and the majority of them receive prescriptions for it. 

Psychologist Stephen Hinshaw and health economist Richard Scheffler approach the issue from their fields of strength and several other angles in the book The ADHD Explosion: Myths, Medication, Money, And Today’s Push For Performance.
