CHILDREN with attention-deficit disorder are being excluded from school up to six times on average, according to a new report.

Long waits for a diagnosis, a lack of classroom learning support and an over-reliance on medication as the only treatment were also highlighted in the first report by the Scottish ADHD Coalition.

I only discovered by chance that I had ADHD. After losing my passport in Thailand in spring 2016, I Googled ‘how to stop losing stuff’. It turned out to be one of the major symptoms of ADHD. Getting my diagnosis explained a lot.

The symptoms of ADHD foster important traits associated with entrepreneurship. That conclusion was reached in a study conducted by an international team of economists, who found that entrepreneurs with ADHD embrace new experiences and demonstrate passion and persistence. Their intuitive decision making in situations involving uncertainty was seen by the researchers as a reason for reassessing existing economic models.

An expert on attention deficit and learning disabilities talks about the biology behind ADHD and why it’s sometimes so difficult to diagnose and treat symptoms in children.

What Does ADHD Look Like?

In my 40 years as a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I have treated thousands of youngsters. With some children, I am able to make a quick evaluation about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and outline a course of ADHD treatment.
