A break from the relationship posts, but more to come.
The Am. Psychiatric Assoc. is revising the DSM V, including the criteria for diagnosing ADHD. Many changes are recommended. The current criteria were written for children and tweaked to apply to adults. The new edition, DSM V TR, is scheduled for release in March, 2022.
Using current criteria, research still shows about 8% of children have ADHD, half of whom no longer meet criteria after adolescence, but still have some symptoms and abnormal brain imaging and neurochemistry. So we members are the tribe are different, but there are a lot of us, 4 % of the population. If the criteria are changed, these numbers will probably change but I doubt if by much.
The link below addresses the inadequacy of current criteria for adults and suggested changes.
Welcome to the new members to the tribe!
