ADHD or Just Young?

A recent Harvard study found a correlation between children with August birthdays entering kindergarten and children with an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis. In summary, children with an August birthday are often much more fidgety and display symptoms of ADHD. The study sampled 400,000 children and found that children with an August birthday were 35% more likely to have an ADHD diagnosis. The author questions whether these children truly have this neurological condition, which often requires medication, or if they are just less mature than their older classmates, many of whom could be 11 months older. #education #management #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhooddevelopment #adhd
