According to the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), a child has ADHD if, for a period of six months, he or she exhibits at least six symptoms from a list of 14.
Among them: “often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities,” “is often easily distracted by extraneous stimuli,” “often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat,” and “often blurts out answers before questions have been completed.”
(In the full listing, please note the precise language used in the DSM-IV definition, such as “often,” “excessively” and “extraneous”).
Parents are frequently surprised to learn that the clinical observation of these symptoms, over the span of a 10-minute doctor’s consultation, is the sole basis of an ADHD diagnosis.
After all, aren’t all kids “easily distracted” some of the time? Isn’t a certain amount of hyperactivity a natural part of childhood?
Check out this Consensus Development Conference on ADD/ADHD 1998:
Even a panel of Doctors can’t seem to describe ADD/ADHD.
Note the part of the video where this panel of ‘experts’ are unable to define the symptoms or diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. Sorry, but I couldn’t watch the whole thing.
