I just read that black and Hispanic children are half as likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as their white peers, according to a new study that followed U.S. kindergarteners through middle school.
I really do wonder why this is. Is it due to underdiagnosis? Is it just that children of color are less likely, for some reason, to have the condition?
What are your thoughts? Do you have a child with ADD/ADHD?
