Sample text

Claire comes down the stairs wrapped in her blanket and she collapses in a heap on the floor. Her mother once again says, “Come on, Claire. This is no time to fool around. ” Claire drags herself to the kitchen table and immediately starts whining. She demands that her mother cook her oatmeal instead of the waffle that is already on the table. ” Claire argues that she does not want a waffl e, she wants oatmeal. Mother knows full well that she should not get sucked into THIS argument again, but her temper is fraying and she shouts, “Just eat what I give you!

2 This term can be misleading to parents and educators. Claire’s mother thought that her daughter did not have any problems with attention because she could play a video game for hours. Researchers Hallowell and Ratey propose that the word deficit is a misnomer. Instead, they suggest that it is the inconsistency and variability of attention that is important. 3 Claire’s mother noted, “My daughter can focus hours on end when she is on a video game or playing a game on her cell phone. But, when it comes to doing her homework, it is another story.

Barkley suggests that this “emotional impulsiveness” is a part of ADHD and can negatively affect social interactions. 4–7 Claire’s mother knew that her daughter had a real attention problem and that she was not just overreacting. She saw that Claire’s attention problems had not affected her grades early on because there were not as many demands on Claire, such as homework and projects. Teachers always reported that Claire was a pleasure to teach. However, Claire’s mother noticed that her daughter’s problems became more evident in the fourth grade.
