Wilson Speaks To New York Times on A.D.H.D.

February 03, 2016, Zach Martin

Dr. Keith B. Wilson of the Rehabilitation Institute was recently approached by the New York Times to provide an editorial as part of a group debate on the issue of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnoses in America today. 

Dr. Wilson's piece centered on the disparity in diagnoses between children of different races, pointing out that black children are more likely to display symptoms commonly associated with the disorder yet far less likely to be diagnosed or receive medication to treat it.

Four other industry experts weighed in on the debate, which can be found in its entirety here.
