The concept of ADHD, Inattentive Type, is changing! The understanding of inattention is shifting from the inability to stay on task to a broader concept called Executive Function Disorder (EFD). This acknowledges that the inattention often seen in children with this diagnosis can sometimes reflect a broader set of executive functioning difficulties. Keep posted for more information about this potentially new diagnostic category.
Remember, the best way to get your child properly diagnosed is with psychoeducational testing. Please feel free to contact my office to schedule your child for testing. You can go to my website at www.DrPaulaBruce.com for more information.
