July 29, 2008

Did you know that 8 percent of school-aged children have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and learning disability?  The percent of children 6-17 years of age with ADHD (with and without LD) increased slowly from 1997 through 2006, whereas the percentage of children with LD (with and without ADHD) did not change significantly.  Approximately 5 percent of children had ADHD without LD. 5 percent had LD without ADHD, and 4 percent had both conditions.
