When I was in elementary school the whole size of my school 1-6th grade was around 200 students. There was maybe 1 student in each classroom that was uncontrollable that probably had ADHD. I bet 20 years later there would be about 5 kids in each classroom that would have ADHD.
Is there something that we have been putting in our enviroment to cause this problem? Do you think any doctors or anyone has been reaserching that so we can find the problem and hope that in the future less people have this problem? I really do not see anything on this topic other than "Drugs" to help deal with this problem. Is there anyone else who have found reaserch into what we can do to help this problem? Or can they not do any reaserch yet because ADHD was not diagnosed 20 years ago so they do not know if it is a growing problem?
