The study results are published in the March/April issue of the journal Academic Pediatrics.

Craig Garfield, M.D., first author of the study, from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a pediatrician at Children's Memorial Hospital and Northwestern Memorial Hospital, suggested that medical doctors have recognized the symptoms of ADHD more than before, which might be the cause for an increase in the number of cases diagnosed.
