The Possibility of Misdiagnosis of Giftedness and ADHD Still Exists: A Response to Mika
Nelson, Jason M.; Rinn, Anne N.; Hartnett, D. Niall
Roeper Review, v28 n4 p243-248 2006
In a previous article, we provided a review of the literature pertaining to the potential misdiagnosis of giftedness as ADHD, as well as a small-scale study to illustrate this potential misdiagnosis. In this issue of "Roeper Review," Mika provides several criticisms of that paper. In this article, we provide responses to her arguments by discussing the "symptoms" of giftedness; the relationship between ADHD, giftedness, and overexcitabilities; and the diagnosis of ADHD.
