A Rhetorical Triangle determines the success of a speech or presentation. And the Rhetorical Analysis of the CDC their purpose is to protect, prevent disease, injury, and any disability. The CDC tries to keep everyone in mind that may be involved with this disease whether it would be from a first, second, or third person stand point of view. By posting websites, the CDC hopes that parents and caregivers will understand ADHD better and will recognize the signs and symptoms to get the child proper treatment, and to also inform readers that the cause of ADHD is still undermanaged. The CDC provides enough information for parents to recognize the potential behavioral problem, and understand that the child may be helped if a doctor takes the child
“These parents need to think about how to protect themselves and their children, and how to stop being violent” (“Needs of Children of Different Ages” Joan B. Kelly).

There 's plenty of drugs the world may think is fine to use only because it 's given to you by a doctor. All prescribed drugs are made to help someone in some kind of way; some drugs are being issued without having the focus on how it can affect the patient in a harmful way. In most cases, these drugs are free based on the patient health insurance, which may cause some to take advantage of the treatments.

Adderall is a commonly prescribed drug that is known for treating mostly kids.
Some doctors are hesitant to have medication as the main way to control ADHD because it is said that many times a child is treated with medication it is wrongly prescribed. This would not happen if all pediatricians were trained correctly. “When we hear that children are being sedated or turned into zombies by ADHD medications, we know that they are not being managed competently. That is a reason to focus on improving the training of health-care professionals, not a reason to take kids off medication entirely” (Koplewicz). Children should not have to suffer just because doctors were not trained

Symptoms are separated into two categories, one is inattentiveness and the other is hyperactivity 1.
The three mental ailments associated with ADHD are inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Living with these conditions is no easy task. Anyone of those symptoms can individually lead to not having good grades, or even losing track of a simple conversation. Put all of them together and you have a dangerous mix that in undoubtably going to lead to poor school performance and an inept social life, if the proper means are not taken.

Mental health issues are on the rise, especially among the youth, 6 out of 10 young people do not receive mental health treatment for major depression. Currently over 40 million Americans are currently dealing with a mental health issue and 56 percent are not receiving proper treatment. (Mental Health America).

In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released a new manual called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), to be used by doctors and other health care professionals to diagnose ADHD in children and adults. This manual serves as a guide for the healthcare practitioners, to lay out the criteria when conducting diagnoses of ADHD in an individual. The recent edition of the manual, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) was produced to change, how ADHD is diagnosed in children and adults particularly the causes of ADHD, the symptom description, and the awareness on the use of information about the disorder in children and adults.
