8 New Facts About ADHD

Kids with ADHD are accident-prone.

They get injured more often than other kids because they don't always think twice before trying daredevil moves like skateboard stunts, and they tend to dash into the street without checking for cars. They're also more likely to be hospitalized for accidental poisonings. As a result, medical bills for ADHD kids are about twice as high as those for children without the disorder, according to the CDC. If your child has ADHD, make sure that he always wears a helmet and protective pads when he bikes or skates, and also keep harmful household products locked up and out of reach.
