Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an early onset, highly heritable and chronic neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by clinically impairing levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The disorder affects an estimated 3.5 million children in the United States at an annual cost of approximately ․20.6 billion, the majority of which is allocated for outpatient care/education related costs (63.9%) and pharmaceutical (35.4%) costs (Bui et al., 2016).
