Camp focuses on helping kids with ADHD

A camp in Kansas City has focused its efforts on helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Children's Mercy sponsors the camp and organizers said the amount of treatment the kids get in eight weeks at the camp is equal to seven years of traditional therapy.

Organizers said they hope the model program will continue to grow because more than four-million kids have been diagnosed with ADHD.

There are only a few camps scattered throughout in the nation, and parents and organizers have said it's made a world of difference by helping children and their families control behavioral issues associated with ADHD. Learn more about the Children's Mercy Summer Treatment Program.
