  Yes. Improved technology and awareness have led doctors to identify the disorders more frequently.

  Yes, but I think that too many doctors and parents are attributing any behavioral problems to the disorders, and are too quick to prescribe or request medication.

  No. The number of students being treated for ADD/ADHD in my classes has remained steady over the years.
