Joanna Garcia,Martin G. Lopez

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), in 2016, 6.1 million children from ages 2-17 were diagnosed with ADHD.

Martin Lopez, Psychotherapist with Baptist Health Care and Counseling, says with children he would usually try behavioral therapy first before going with stimulants.

"The issue with stimulants is that they don't help you to develop the skills you are going to need to work on", he points out. Lopez also highlights about 60-70% of individuals are helped by the extra medications.
