ADHD could easily be descibed as "the way boys behave".
Contrart to your article these classes are filled with ONLY boys.
Studies show that the teachers like easily controlled, quiet, mannerly kids....girls qualify easily for that.
Therefore boys are very often disliked by teachers, referred & penelized for BOY behavior.
As for how they got that way; there are many who use TV for baby sitters. Tv has flashing,constantly changing scenes inducing that type of thinking .
Classrooms are chaotic.

PS An ez catch-all financed by insurance & willing Drs. Accpted by relatives as "why" the kid is nuts.
I have worked in this setting & I so find this is true.

Attention Defecit Hyperactivity Disorder is a catch-all term, that is why.

I really don't think there is an outbreak of this disorder, only a mis-diagnosis and over prescription.
