Yes and no. Although most people in the medical community view ADHD as a real diagnosis, some have suggested that the disorder is more or less a sham, born out of a cultural need for children to behave a certain way. Others suggest that ADHD is the result of the need for pharmaceutical companies to make money. (See http://www.wellcorps.com/Mothers-Little-Helper-The-History-of-Amphetamine-and-Anti-Depressant-Use-in-America.html.) For additional information, go to “ ADHD: Perception and Reality.
