ADHD and
Diverse Populations

ADHD affects children and adults of all races, ethnicities, ages, socioeconomic groups, and genders.

Twelve percent of African-American children and around 7 percent of Hispanic/Latino children have ever been diagnosed with ADHD.

ADHD is also present in the military community, with almost one in ten service members screening positive for ADHD.
