The problem with describing ADHD is that those who most need to know tend to have a very short attention span and get distracted easily.

Thank goodness ADHD is now taken seriously despite what you may think from some of the posts here. People have to live with this condition and make the best of it. It is no joke....

I hope my levity did not cause ill-feeling. This is a difficult condition and has blighted the lives of a number of young people I know as well as making their parents lives a great deal harder. I don't know why it has taken so long for schools to have the most rudimentary grasp of conditions such as this. Dyslexia, for example, was described in the literature over a century ago but did not exist so far as Dorset education was concerned until a few years ago. Asperger syndrome and autism were described in medical papers in the 1940s but the former was a novelty to our schools only a few years ago.

Our great British journalists, at least a good few in the popular papers, have not even got this far as evidenced by the article referred to in the first comment. Dr Kelsall has considerable wisdom and experience in this area and will be well worth hearing by anybody who comes into people with this condition.
