Patient discussion about patient day
Q. Why these days in spite of the awareness and knowledge about ADHD, the ADHD patients are on the rise?
A. No …it’s not. I think this growing awareness has made the diagnosis easy and helpful. As previous parents never used to take their child serious for the possibility of any psychological disorders but now they do. Moreover regarding ADHD, now the school teacher and anyone who deals with child are trained to identify the child in their training. Even growing awareness has also paves way for treatment at the correct time before it gets severe.More discussions about patient day
