Diagnosing and Treating ADHD According to the CDC, more than 1 out of every 10 American children has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a 41 percent increase over the last decade. Of those, 69 percent are taking medication. Some people say ADHD is a public health epidemic, others says it's over-diagnosed and over-medicated.
