The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that the percentage of children with an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder diagnosis has increased an average of about 3% per year since 2003 (7.8%) to 2011 (11%). ADHD has been associated with myriad behavioral, social, and psychological problems that can result in school failure, family problems, social difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Children with ADHD are more likely to be injured traumatically due to impulsive and active behavior.
