had trouble following simple directions and adapting to the
daily routines, while the majority of kids seemed to adjust

prioritize tasks and activities.
Children with the disorder are often seen as disobedient,

Prevention (CDC) found 5.2 million, or 8.4 percent of chil-
dren ages 3-17 in the U.S., had been diagnosed with ADHD
— 12 percent of all boys and 4.7 percent of all girls.

Helpful therapies vary, but diagnosis is key.
