Attention Deficit Disorder

It seems as though there has been an increase in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder. Are we becoming more aware of this disorder or are we over-diagnosing it? The National Institute of Mental Health funds research on a variety of learning disabilities and has published several helpful brochures and information packets on attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities in general. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder describes symptoms, co-existing conditions, and possible causes, as well as treatment and education options. Learning Disabilities describes treatment options, strategies for coping, and sources of information and support.
