Nearly 1 in 10 kids between the ages of 3 and 17 have an ADHD diagnosis. Of these, about 9 in 10 kids will need some form of support or accommodation in school. October is ADHD Awareness Month, and we’re sharing ways you can advocate for local youth in Richmond, VA.
In October and year-round, youth with ADHD need to know they’re valued, supported, and loved. Here are some ways you can help:
Children with ADHD are less likely to graduate from a four-year college, are at a higher risk of accidents, and are more likely to drop out of high school. For many, learning to cope with the condition can make all the difference.
Hallmark Youthcare offers youth behavioral assessments in Richmond to help diagnose conditions like ADHD early and get children treatments that improve their quality of life. Contact us today to learn more.
