Help for ADHD

If your child or an adult in your family has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, a good online source of information is the National Resource Center on ADHD. This site, established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offers information on diagnosis and treatment; educational issues; and living with ADHD. According to the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, three to seven percent of schoolchildren have ADHD.
