    CHICAGO, Sept. 30 (AP) - The American Academy of Pediatric Me4dcine has issued its first guidelines for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, suggesting that stimulant drugs may be most effective but that behavioral techniques should also be used. The guidelines appear in the October issue of the medical journal Pediatrics, which will be released Monday.
    As many as 3.8 million school-age children, most of them boys, are believed to have attention deficit disorders. Symptoms may include a short attention span, impulsive behavior and difficulty sitting still. The guidelines, which fall in line with those issued in recent years by the National Institute of Mental Health, were created in consultation with child psychiatrists and psychologists. They suggest that the evidence favoring medications like Ritalin is stronger than the evidence about behavioral therapy.

    Between 500,000 and 700,000 Americans have cerebral palsy, and in the United States, about 1,500 babies are born with it each year. The details of the causes of cerebral palsy are still unclear but it is believed that premature birth, low birth weight, difficult or abnormal delivery, infections in the mother during pregnancy, lead poisoning, excessive consumption of alcohol, excessive smoking by the mother, and hypoxia are significant risk factors.
    Because of the breadth of impairments, there is a wide range of strategies that are applicable: see the motor/orthopedic sections of this site. In cases where other impairments (as listed above) are involved, go to that section in strategies.
