A.D.H.D. stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity
Disorder and was finally coined as the title for the condition
in 2000 by the United Nations World Health Authority.
Prior to that there were over 200 years of discussions about a
significant proportion of society who portrayed a series of
symptoms and difficulties which many have tried to explain and
share a key understanding of the
condition based on all the leading
documentation and presentations on
the condition. All the
information contained in this site
is a balanced view of the opposing
sides of the ongoing debate.
The conclusions are based on the
personal experiences of those with
ADHD and the success of advice based
on this information in helping those
with ADHD. We recognise that
not everyone will agree with our
assessment however we believe that
the science and reality of our
success with helping those with ADHD
combine to prove our position
correct. We of course will
revise all aspects as new findings
in science are released, that said
to date we have found that the
science has at each stage proved our
overall understanding correct and
helped refine the reasons for what
You will note that there is a
clear difference between what we
share with you and what the press
present in headline grabbing
articles. We hope that what we
share will help to combat the wrong
views of the condition in society,
the press, government, health
professions and the education
establishment and build a better
future for those with ADHD and their
ADHD was fundamentally misnamed. When one looks
at Attention Deficit Disorders and Hyperactivity Disorders we
discover a very differ set of conditions which do not resemble
ADHD'ers or the problems they experience on a day to day basis.
The terms was coined based on the subjective and negative
symptoms which seemed to be portrayed by the condition rather
than based on the official terms from which it was compiled.
This has led to a very dismissive and negative view of the
condition in which society driven by the press refer to it as
the "badly behaved" condition.
In this website we present ADHD
as a Neurodevelopmental Condition
which based on brain scans has been
proven to be a Executive Function
Disorder, and may well see the name
of the condition changed in light of
the scientific evidence.
Originally ADHD was rejected as
an Executive Function Disorder based
on the text books for that condition
but the brain scans have shown that
the books need to be re-written and
for a completely new understanding
of the brain be accepted.
Aspects of the Condition
As we will explain in further sections of this website
ADHD can be more helpfully
understood in the following terms:
- "Time Blindness Disorder"
- "Self Motivation Disorder"
- "Emotion Moderation
But put simply is a group of
people who "Live in the Now".
