Estimates vary about how many people are affected by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The accepted standard for diagnosing ADHD is the DSM-IV criteria from the American Psychiatric Association.1 A child's dominant symptoms (inattention, impulsiveness, and/or hyperactivity) are determined and categorized. The condition affects about 3 to 7 out of 100 school-age children in the United States.1
