The Link Between Age and ADHD Diagnosis
Interesting new research from Curtin University in Western Australia is likely to raise the perennial question of whether children should be held back from starting primary school in favour of an additional year in an early childhood setting.

The Curtin researchers have established that the youngest children in West Australian classrooms are more likely than their older classmates to receive medication for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
