Three-time Emmy Award winning actress Kathy Baker to participate in ADHD experts on call program

New York, August 12, 2003 To help families and caregivers better understand attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dispel some common myths about the condition, Shire US Inc will host the fifth annual ADHD Experts on Call on Tuesday, August 26, 2003 from 8 A.M. to midnight EDT. This year, three-time Emmy Award-winning actress Kathy Baker (Picket Fences, The Cider House Rules and the upcoming Cold Mountain), whose 13-year old son was diagnosed with ADHD four years ago, will talk about her own personal experience dealing with a child with ADHD, as well as answer calls along with the nation's top ADHD authorities at the national toll-free telephone hotline, 1-888-ASK-ADHD.

The hotline is designed to provide "live" access to English- and Spanish-speaking experts including physicians, school nurses, educators, and advocates who can answer questions regarding the disorder. In addition, a confidential, one-on-one on-line forum will be available at http://www.ADHDExpertsOnCall.com throughout the day.

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental health disorder in children and adolescents with approximately two million U.S. children, or three to seven percent of all school-aged children, diagnosed with ADHD. Over the last four years, the ADHD Experts on Call have fielded more than 14,000 inquiries and have helped many people better understand the condition and how it may affect their families.

"I know how important it is to have access to accurate information about ADHD there are so many conflicting reports about the condition that sometimes it's hard to know what's fact and what's fiction," said Ms. Baker. "I'm so pleased to be involved with ADHD Experts on Call, and I hope that by sharing my family's experience, I'll help other parents understand that there is something they can do to help their child."

The symptoms of ADHD have a profound effect on a child's quality of life
