ADHD diagnosis study
When it comes to ADHD, a new study shows there is a racial disparity in the diagnosis of that condition.
Black and Hispanic children are much less likely than white children to be diagnosed with Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder.
The odds of a diagnosis were 50% lower for Hispanic children than for white children and 69% lower for African American children.
Researchers at Penn State found the disparity means minority children are less likely to get proper treatments that could help them in school.
