From UT: ADHD in a different light

My other alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin, has an interesting web feature out today about some emerging research about ADHD. It’s worth a look because it offers a great characterization of what ADHD is really like:

“ADHD is not about inattention,” Gilden says. “It’s a disorder in the way people thread moment-to-moment experiences together. Children with ADHD are often disruptive because their world is moving at a much faster pace and there’s always going to be a mismatch between their world and ours.”
