I have to agree with blur29, the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD is given too easily and too loosely! This then leads to the drug being given out too easily as well. I know a friend who has a 9 year old son, the boy is super slow that at times he really does need a little more urging on. He also can't seem to concentrate much on anything for a considerate amount of time and is also hyperactive! Before proper analysis and check ups the teachers at his school going off his 'symptoms' diagnosed him with ADHD... I found that really unbecoming especially if there was no medical profession there to confirm their claims. People just assume these days!
