Gifted or ADHD (ADHD Misdiagnoses part 2)

Uploaded on Dec 24, 2011 - In a recent article I took look at the huge problem of ADD/ADHD misdiagnosis. The true extent of this problem becomes apparent when you stop to analyze the diagnosis rates over the past decade and also the rate at which ADD/ADHD medication is prescribed. The results of such an analysis will astound you! When plotted on a graph it appears as if the ADD/ADHD 'industry' can look forward to being one of the few 'growth industries' left in the wider economy! So what is happening? It seems that we are either facing an epidemic of catastrophic proportions or a diagnostic system that is driven by something else besides clinical accuracy. It is my conviction that the latter is the case and that vast numbers of people receive incorrect ADD/ADHD diagnoses (with life changing implications) every year.....
