ADHD in Youth: Understanding factors leading to diagnosis

Although both genetic and environmental factors have been implicated, the exact etiology of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder is unknown. A study in this issue of WMJ explores sociocultural factors and disparities that may influence the diagnosis of ADHD in children. Better understanding of these influences can in turn lead to better treatment decisions and more informed stakeholders.
