Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder as a Disability Category: A Critique.
Reid, Robert; And Others
Exceptional Children, v60 n3 p198-214 Dec-Jan 1994
This article notes efforts to include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as a formal disability category and challenges the validity of assumptions that ADHD is a psychiatric disorder and is characterized by academic difficulties. Social and cultural factors are seen as fueling the perceived need for the ADHD category. (Author/DB)
