Over the past two decades, U.S. parents and teachers have reported epidemic levels of children with trouble focusing, impulsive behavior and so much energy that they are bouncing off walls. Educators, policymakers and scientists have referred to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, as a national crisis and have spent billions of dollars looking into its cause.
"Could Some ADHD Be a Type of Sleep Disorder? That Would Fundamentally Change How We Treat It." is from the September 20, 2017 Health section of The Washington Post. It was written by Ariana Eunjung Cha and narrated by Sam Scholl.
