categories. they have something for everybody. if you don't want one product, you want another. >> reporter: and at the auditorium, it seats 7,000, much larger than the 750 seat venue they often use for the announcements. the possibility of another government shut down is looming right now as some republicans try to use votes on spending bills to block funding for planned parenthood. it's not the only big potential issue right now. across the board spending cuts from sequestration could also hit d.c. if lawmakers can't make a deal. wtop reports local businesses are already thinking about furloughs and spending cuts. in just a couple of hours, we'll get our first look at a brand new visitor center that tells the story of flight 93. the complex which features

degrees. a partly cloudy sky back down to the 80s by this evening and showers beginning move in as we get into tomorrow. >> this morning parents have a lot to think about with the w a new study that examined attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder, or adhd. with them telling us children six and younger are being diagnose nosed, how do they find it in children so young? >> i think only the vast minority of kids should be diagnosed with adhd under the age of six. in those cases, it's reserved for those who are really struggling at home or threatening to maybe be kicked out of their schools because they can't function. for the majority of cases, you should be at least seven years old before you take a look at the diagnosis. i am not willing to consider this diagnosis in my practice
until they're seven. if this diagnosis is being made in half the kids at that age, that's a problem. people need to be aware it's normal for kids to have issues with impulsivity and all the symptoms clustered with adhd is normal in young kids. >> so because we're seeing more cases, we understand, is it because we are sensitive to this, or is it because we now know how to recognize it? >> well, i think that this is a very complicated question. this is the million dollar question. my take is we are more sensitive to it. i think there are more pressures on kids and parents for their kids to behave a certain way in school. there's less free time for things like pe in school, and i think the big factor also is lack of sleep for a lot of kids and diet. we know diet can impact kid's behavior, and we know that diets that don't have a lot of
probiotics in them, diets in which you're eating a lot of carbohydrates or processed foods are going to exacerbate issues with hyper activity. >> can you run through the stomps? >> impulsivity, hyper activity, problems with paying attention in general, but the thing that parents need to be aware of is even the child with the worse case of adhd still can focus just fine if they're really interested in topic. if your child can sit and play legos for two hours but they have a hard time with everything else, you can't say it's a behaifb behavioral problem. they could still have adhd. >> we have other questions. stay right where you are. thanks. the bell's toll across great britain as queen elizabeth breaks a record.
what did iran's supreme leader get in the nuclear deal? to start with, $100 billion. they keep their nuclear facilities and ballistic missiles. there won't be surprise anytime-anywhere inspections. and after ten years, restrictions are lifted and iran could build a nuclear weapon in two months. congress should reject a bad deal. we need a better deal.

they involve a razor sharp blade that stick up. one man said he found the traps while he was hacking near fishing creek road. the paper says this problem is creating confusion over which agency should take the traps away. for now, if you find a trap, you should call the sheriff's office. >> the fbi gets involved after a crime spree hits the district, maryland, and virginia. >> and storm team 4 showing us a line of showers and storms. that forecast in a little bit with a look

from boys to girls. boys are much more likely to be hyper active, hard time sitting still in class and sitting at the dinner table. girls are more likely to have the symptoms of inattention. that's harder to pick up. these are the kids that are going to be doodling and daydreaming. when a lot of people think of adhd, they think of a kid climbing all over the furniture. that doesn't present that way for a girl. >> you think maybe under six is too young to diagnose? >> i do. i think teachers are a good source of information. they have a norm. they've got 20 other kids in the class room. they can compare your kid to the others in temprms of their abily to stay on task. parents need to be on the lookout of the possibility of
their child forgetting things or being disorganized. talk to your pediatrician or a child psychiatrist. there are a lot of things that could be mimicking ahdh, and it takes some skill and time to tease that apart to find out what's going on. >> all right. dr. winer, thank you for that. >> my pleasure. and we'll go back to pat. >> well, the word of the day is apple. we'll see the company's brand new gadgets in a matter of hours.
