There’s a lot more to ADHD than what you may have seen on TV, read in the newspapers, or heard from friends. The first step to understanding ADHD is separating the myths from the facts.
MYTH: ADHD is not a “real” disorder. It’s often blown out of proportion.
FACT: ADHD is a disorder that has been confirmed by more than 45 years of scientific research and hundreds of clinical studies. The condition affects approximately 3% to 7% of school-aged children.
MYTH: Poor parenting, schooling, or nutrition causes ADHD.
FACT: There is no research to support that poor parenting, schooling, or nutrition causes ADHD. The cause of ADHD is unknown.
MYTH: People with ADHD aren’t as smart as people without the condition.
FACT: Having ADHD does not mean that someone is less intelligent or talented than someone without the condition. ADHD affects people of all intelligence levels.
MYTH: Medication for ADHD doesn’t really work.
FACT: Medication, as part of an overall treatment program, can help manage your child’s ADHD symptoms; this includes support from you, your health care professional, and your child’s teachers.
