It all begins with the identify itself — attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD), which connotes a deficiency. But in reality that folks with ADHD don't suffer from a deficit of attention. We have an abundance of attention — for the things that captivate our interests. Another commonplace misconception is that the unfavorable symptoms of ADHD in children derive from careless, uninvolved, or inaccurate parenting. Not true. Actually, there is a long and shameful custom of blaming oldsters for psychological health prerequisites which might be genetic.
