Enuresis and ADHD
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common psychiatric diagnosis in childhood and adolescence, and its prevalence is similar in those countries where epidemiological studies have been conducted. The mean prevalence worldwide was recently estimated at 5.48% of school-aged children – meaning that, in France, it is likely that 600,000–800,000 children are affected by ADHD.
