ADHD – Is North America handing out a pharmacological band aid?

Most parents I meet do not want to medicate their children. Most teachers do not want medicated students. However, there are still some obvious behaviours to deal with.
I thought this was an interesting article shared on Facebook about the North American diagnosis of ADHD vs the French diagnosis of ADHD.
In France doctors look at the underlying social and contextual causes. Nutritional causes are examined and parenting styles are also said to produce better behaved children. I think they are onto something – ‘très bien’!
