在美国是5.2 million young people have been formally diagnosed with 注意力缺陷多动症 (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). It’s a common neurodevelopmental disorder that is typically diagnosed in childhood, and is a condition that one can learn to manage successfully. Intervening early is critical so that kids and families can learn additional techniques to boost school success, enhance the ability to make and maintain friendships, and strengthen their ability to regulate strong emotions.
随着知名度的提高, 多动症已经获得了许多著名的拥护者, such as Olympic athletes Michael Phelps and Simone Biles, 音乐家贾斯汀·汀布莱克, actors Will Smith and Emma Watson and journalist Lisa Ling who have 注意力缺陷多动症 themselves and work to raise awareness.
