"If not corrected, the condition can result in hyperactivity and attention problems in school that are often mistaken for A.D.H.D. and sometimes mistreated with a stimulant that only makes matters worse...However, once the condition is effectively treated, the child’s behavior can improve drastically, and most young children are able to catch up on developmental milestones that might have been delayed."
