I have a son diagnosed with ADHD.
It isn’t fictitious. Maybe the name is wrong.
When you can hear the difference in his ability to read before and after medication, it isn’t a fantasy.
Pre-med, he would skip entire words, reading in a halting, “train-wreck” fashion.
30 minutes after medication, he stopped skipping words, reading smoothly.
He wasn’t a behavioral problem. He has a problem getting his mind to slow down to process words.
Call it ADHD, call it whatever you want. But it isn’t a myth.
“Call it ADHD, call it whatever you want. But it isnt a myth.”
Maybe what your son has isn’t a myth, but maybe your son doesn’t have ADHD—which I believe is a malicious myth.
I knew a boy who was getting in all kinds of trouble in the sixth grade. After Christmas break he started college, and did very well.
