♪ in today's morning rounds, the fda just approved the first device to treat adhd. we first told you yesterday about the breakthrough that will be marketed as a treatment for children who are 7 to 12 years old. in a clinical trial, kids got low-level electrical pulses while they slept. an estimated 6.1 million children have been diagnosed with adhd in the u.s. according to a national survey of children's health in 2016. our dr. tara narula is here.
7:42 am
so how does this work? >> the device is basically a new treatment that's nondrug related, which is great for a lot of parents who don't want to put their kids on medication. it's the size of a cell phone and has a wire that attaches to a patch that's placed on the child's forehead. they wear it at night while they're sleeping for about eight hours. it's meant for kids over the age of 7 not on medication. essentially, the way it works is it emits a low-level electrical pulse that essentially stimulates a cranial nerve. the idea is that that nerve then sends signals into the brain, particularly to the areas that are important for attention, for functioning and behavior, and the idea is it can help symptoms. they saw in this small study of about 60 kids over four weeks, it did reduce symptoms. it seems to be on par with the effects of nonstimulant medications. >> so this is the area of the brain that's still developing. this is the executive function area of the brain. >> right. >> doesn't get fully cooked until about age 25.
7:43 am
so what's the downside? it feels like you're tinkering with a part of the brain that's developing. >> this is clearly the first of its kind. i think probably we have a long way to go in terms of the research. but as far as this study, they did not see any serious adverse events. they did see side effects like drowsiness, increased appetite, some fatigue, headache, teeth clenching. but as i said, it was a small study, and it was over a short period of time. we don't know what it would be like if kids were on medication when they used this. >> how do you know the difference between a child that's a little ram bunk, a little distracted, and someone that has adhd? >> i think there's a little confusion. a lot of the symptoms, like daydreaming or fidgeting or talking a lot, could be misconstrued.
7:44 am
really, this is a chronic disorder that affects about 10% of children. it's characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity. you see it at school and at home. it persists for longer than six months. >> and they can't control it? >> and it affects function. if their function is limited academically, socially, emotionally, that's when you might want your child to be seen and evaluated. we know a third of these kids have other disorders like anxiety disorders or mood disorders. a third will go on to carry the symptoms into adulthood. the issue is it can be associated with things like increased risk of substance abuse, injury, accidental or intentional, poor academic performance. important to really truly identify it and get kids treated for it. >> once you have it, do you always have it? >> some people may outgrow it. some, it can persist into adulthood for sure. and there are treatments. we know for kids under 6, the recommendation is behavioral therapy. this is really where we teach parents how to kind of reinforce positive behaviors and eliminate those ones that are negative.
7:45 am
and also then medication in combination with behavioral therapy for kids over 6. the class of drugs we typically use are stimulants like a adderall. but they have side effects too. >> there's help out there. doctors want to help. >> as always, check with your doctor. thank you. coming up next, a look at this morning's other headlines, including why the brothers involved in the alleged jussie smollett hoax are now suing two of the "empire" actors good wednesday morning to you. it's going to be feeling like summer once again today. so a hot day inland. 90 in fairfield and livermore. 9 in concord. 80 for oakland. mid 70 in san francisco and

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead the link between isis and the sri lanka bombings what they say about the future of the terror organization. we'll talk with former cia insider, michael burrell, you can hear it here. the conversation with the national teacher of the year. we'll announce the winner on "cbs this morning." first, here is today ice eye opener at 8:00. president trump is strongly resisting democrats who want to question current and former white house aids.
8:01 am
the white house is keeping all the legal options open with regard to any subpoenas served under administration officials. >> biden's first campaign event is in philly. >> he's going to fire the defense structures and restructure the police and security securities. people think it's far too little too late. >> it's taken her all the time to muster up the courage to tell her story. her lawyer said they're seeking punitive damages and apology. >> i thought he was going rape me. >> it's unusual for body cam video hob released after just one week. it's a process that typically takes four to six months. with increasing pressure, officials chose to be more transparent. >> there are now 20 democrats running for president. 20. yes. one more candidate and the fire marshall will step in and shut it down. you clowns get out of here!
8:02 am
all right. we have to clear this hallway. sanders, get off the floor! there are some other prominent democrats who agree it's getting a bit too crowded. but it sorts itself out. that's a democracy. >> right. more to come. >> right. >> i'm norah o'donnell with gayle king and john dicke jon. sri lanka's president is asking his country's police chief and defense minister to resign after officials fail to act on warnings ahead of sunday's terror attacks. at least 359 people are now reported killed in a string of suicide bombings at churches and hotels on easter sunday. police say 60 people have been arrested in connection with the attacks. the u.s. embassy in sri lanka said it had no prior knowledge of any threats. the ambassador said this morning she believes terrorist groups are still plotting possible attacks inside that country. isis released this video claiming that it shows a group
8:03 am
of suicide bombers that took part in the attacks after pledging allegiance to the terror group. isis has offered no other evidence to back up its claim of responsibility. cbs news senior national contributor joins us from washington. a former deputy director and acting director of the cia and host of intelligence matters pod cast. good morning, mike. >> good morning. >> so, two days passed before isis claimed responsibility. what does this tell you about what role isis may or may not have actually played in this bombing? >> so, john, there's two possibilities. right. one is that they somehow directed the attack. the other is that they simply inspired it. the fact that it took them two days to claim responsibility suggests to me that it might be the latter inspired rather than the former directed. because if they directed it, they would have known from the get go that played a role.
8:04 am
it's suggestive of inspiration rather than direction, but i think it's going to take some time for us to figure out that exactly. >> it was so well coordinated. i mean, the number of attacks. does that suggest some foreign interference or help? >> so it does on the surface but i think one thing we have to be conscious of is that the sir lane can security services are not strong. i think it's even fair to say they're inept. so you have to look at the capabilities of the terrorist group relative to the security service that they're running up against. what is interesting, to me, is less the fact they didn't do enough with the warning they were given and more of the fact that all of this happened right underneath their nose and they didn't see any of it. that's more interesting to me. it suggests that they need significant strengthening as a security service. >> i want to get your take on a couple of big stories out this morning that involve russian
8:05 am
interference in our elections, first. jared kushner, one of the president's closest advisors was here in new york. he rarely does interviews, and he suggested yesterday the multiple investigations into russian election interference were more harmful to american democracy than essentially the original interference. let's listen to what he said. >> you look at you know what russia did buying some facebook ads to try to sew dissent and it's a terrible thing. i think the investigations and the spikelation that happened for the last two years had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple of facebook ads. >> was it just facebook ads that russia was involved in? >> no. the russians across a whole range of activities from stealing information and giving it to wikileaks to trying to get inside state and local voting systems, to the use of their overt media, to everything they did on social media, it was huge -- it was a very
8:06 am
significant and extensive interference. jared is trying to down play this a little bit by saying a few ads. right. we're talking about ads that reached over 100 million people. so this was a significant attack and the investigation never would have occurred had the attack never occurred. so i think the attack is the most significant thing here. >> go ahead. >>well, multifaceted they were trying to get in lots of points. the reason this is important not just what happened in the past but what is happening in the future in the "new york times" has a piece this morning that said former department of homeland secretary was told by mick mulvaney not to bring up new russian interference problems in front of the president. it would make the president angry. >> it's clear to me and clear to u.s. intelligence officials, and we know this from public testimony by the director of
8:07 am
national intelligence, that it is highly likely that the russians are going to come back and play a significant role in the 2020 election, and that we should expect new approaches, new things they're going to do to try to get around the defenses we put in place. that means, to me, there needs to be a very significant effort on the part of the u.s. government to defend ourselves. and that really requires the leadership of the president. and if he's not providing that leadership, then i worry about whether our government will be ready for the attack that is almost certainly coming. >> all right. you'll be calling the white house to let them know that when? >> right away. >> thank you. >> good to see you. >> it's stunning reporting in the "new york times" whether you have a white house-led, a multifaceted way to push back against the cyber attacks and other things. thank you so much. and we should point out that mike is interviewing of secretary of state mike pompeo.
