The hype around the term disorder gives the impression that this is a sickness. The behaviors are real, the conditions are real. The problems for the children, their parents, their teachers, their classmates and their friends are real.
However this is not a sickness. To treat the many conditions placed under the umbrella term ADHD it is first essential to understand the causes of ADHD behavior. In this case they are varied and complex. A true disorder is independent of culture and is not based on arbitrary guidelines of children’s behavior patterns within a particular society. The DSM-IV describes ADHD as one condition with three subtypes, based on a list of behaviors. That assumption, of seeing a behavior as a disorder, fails to differentiate between a disease and a diagnosis of symptoms, as well as failing to differentiating between cause and effect. The disorder if there is one, is the cause of the behavior.
Good upbringing, bad upbringing, encouragement, anger, happiness, frustration, anxiety or a peaceful disposition, these all cause certain behaviors. The problem raised by the term mental disorders has been much clearer than its solution, and, unfortunately, the term persists in the title of DSM-IV because we have not found an appropriate substitute.
