How is attention deficit disorder diagnosed?

A: Because ADHD symptomatology is often present in children with poor coordination, reading and learning problems, and other neurodevelopmental disturbances, in the past labels such as ''minimal brain damage'' and ''minimal brain dysfunction'' were assigned, although no neurologic pathology or injury was detectable.

Is there a link between television and attention deficit disorder in children?

A: According to some, yes: http://www.whitedot.org/issue/iss_story.asp?slug=ADHD%20Toddlers . But, I would also put money on a correlation between the amount of prescription drugs available for ADD and diagnoses of ADD. I never even heard of ADD when I was a child, they just called it “being a child”, and I had tv as a child (I''m not THAT old). But nowadays it seems there has to be a name for everything. Everything is a disorder nowadays. I actually saw an article in the newspaper detailing how a guy was being defended on murder charges due to a narcisstic disorder. I mean please people. Take a little responsiblity for yourself here. But, I digress… I think that television is one of the few things that can help an ADHD patient focus. The compulson to watch TV is an attempt...
