When I posted our list today of the Best Toys for Kids with ADHD on our website, I had no idea that the American Academy of Pediatrics would report its new findings that ADHD can be diagnosed and treated in children as young as 4. The group had, in the past put the threshold at age 6. Notably the nation’s leading association of pediatricians suggested that these children did not necessarily need to be placed on medicine, but that identification and treatment could be started at this age.
I’d recommend taking a look at the findings on the APP website. http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/adhd.cfm
Here’s an article about the findings from the LA Times.
