Parents, Teens And Attention Deficit Disorder

May 12, 2014

Dr. Wes Crenshaw joins Steve Kraske to talk about ADD and ADHD.

The terms ADD and ADHD have become common parlance as more and more kids get diagnosed with these attention disorders. But what’s the difference between your average squirmy kid and one who needs treatment?

On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with psychologist Wes Crenshaw and a few local teens about how kids are diagnosed and whether doctors are over-diagnosing when it comes to these conditions. We also take a look at how to get the right treatments and what a difference that can make.
