A new study by the CDC found that Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder rates among children three to 17 are higher than recent years. The disorder now tops the list at number one for mental health issues of children under 18.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, about four million children have the disorder nationwide. That amounts to about 7 percent of children.
KOB Eyewitness News 4 found that trend does not carry over to New Mexico. Nevada and the Land of Enchantment have the lowest numbers of ADHD cases.

There's many reasons why Adam Alvarez chose Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" to sing to his mother on Sunday. In many ways, Alvarez said he is raising himself up from tragedy.
Alvarez devoted two songs to his mother, Delia Alvarez, during an intimate performance at the chapel of Lovelace Women's Hospital, where Ms. Alvarez is a patient.
It has been two weeks since Alvarez, the choir director at St. Jude Thaddeus Church has performed in front of an audience.
