Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an ambiguous and controversial diagnosis. The disorder is defined in general by symptoms such as inattention, poor concentration, distractibility, hyperactivity, and poor impulse control (i.e., procrastination, lack of see-through, forgetfulness), and poor peer-to-peer relationships.
What contributes to the ambiguous nature of the disorder are symptoms such as “dislikes homework” or “does not like to listen when spoken to directly,” which on their own may appear normal but in combination may diminish productivity, social interaction, and age-appropriate development in children, as well as contribute to significant impairment of occupational abilities.
Further complicating the possibility of a specific diagnosis are other simultaneous disorders such as oppositional defiant disorder or learning disorders that overlap in display of symptoms with ADHD.
