ADHD Study

New research shows they may be able to grow out of the attention disorder. A study shows, the brains of kids with ADHD develop about two to three years slower than kids without the disorder. The good news, that development has the possibility of catching up to normal with the right kind of support. "It may mean that we have to just provide them with education and interventions that are timed differently."

With this kind of support, the study shows by mid-adolescence that brain development gap narrows between kids with and without ADHD but there still could be some lingering behavior issues.
