The Racine Collaborative for Children's Mental Health and The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread.
Goals: 

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood. It affects about 3 - 5% of school aged children. In Racine schools, psychotropic medication is the most common type of medication administered to students. This Community Briefing will bring together multiple perspectives to help shed light on common questions and concerns related to ADHD: Does ADHD actually exist? Is it over-diagnosed? What are the safest and most effective ways to treat ADHD and its symptoms?
