The prevalence of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) was studied among school children in a mid-southern state. Responses of 128 of 311 school superintendents reveal that, overall, 3% of students are identified as ADHD, although in some districts as many as 25% have received this diagnosis. Implications of these findings are discussed. (SLD)
