The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved the first medical device to treat ADHD in children. The device, worn on the forehead, delivers mild electrical nerve stimulation throughout the night, and parents say it helped their children improve their focus.
Nathan Blum, MD, Chief of the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at CHOP, spoke with KYW Newsradio about the study. While it may help some families, he believes more research is still needed.
