Product Description

INSTANT ACCESS! In this audio webinar and slide presentation of "The ADHD Explosion," Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, discusses:

  • One in 20 kids were diagnosed with ADHD in the 1980s and ‘90s. One in nine are diagnosed with the condition today.
  • Too many diagnoses of ADHD are made on the basis of a 10- to 15-minute visit to a pediatrician’s office, without the doctor taking a thorough history.
  • Government policies, like No Child Left Behind, are a major force in the rise in diagnosis and ADHD prescriptions written.
