The number of children diagnosed with ADHD is growing at an alarming rate.

A study looked at health records for thousands of kids in California. The number of kids diagnosed with ADHD spiked nearly 25 percent since 2001.

Boys are three times more likely to be diagnosed than girls, and children from high-income families are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD.
