My Fusion Story

By Javier Arguello

Just one generation ago ADHD affected approximately one in 25 students. Today, one in five high school boys are diagnosed with ADHD1. In the United States, of the overall population of children aged 4 to 17, 11% are diagnosed with ADHD according the latest study published by the Center for Disease Control2. The increases in the rate of diagnosis don’t appear to be abating, which cause concern among parents and a valid debate.

Do we have a true ADHD epidemic in the United States (given that no other country on earth comes close to our rates) or is there an overdiagnosis epidemic? While accurate diagnosis matter for society in general, as a parent of a child who suffers from inattentiveness, it is important to understand which underlying issues can cause inattentiveness and what can be done to improve attention. Understanding the root of inattentiveness is critical to identifying a valid approach to improving attention.
