ADHD study links teens' symptoms with digital media use

CNN just posted on a study linking ADHD with digital media use - a risk factor we identify in our own evidence-based resources.

After analyzing the self-reported symptoms and digital media survey responses, the researchers found that each additional high-frequency engagement in a digital media activity was associated with higher odds of having ADHD symptoms at each follow-up point.
However, the study, which was published in the medical journal JAMA, sheds light on how more research is needed to determine whether symptoms of ADHD, are possibly caused by digital media use.
