This fellow, Dr. Peter Gray is compiling stories from parents on their ADHD children. He suspects that kids with ADHD who are homeschooled, unschooled or completely neglected and left to be raised by wolves (haha, I’m JUST KIDDING on that last one) maybe, just maybe….have a different outcome from their traditionally school counterparts.
I’ve long-held that ADHD is, to a certain extent, the fruit of compulsory education. Just check out some of the diagnostic criteria for ADHD and decide for yourself. Most of the “symptoms” manifest in a classroom.
I’m enormously interested in Dr. Gray’s findings and will keep you posted.
