Wondered if anyone else is watching this? Hopefully will shed more light On this and create more awareness that ADHD is a medical condition and not just children being naughty or bad parenting. There was a thread recently where some posters were arguing aggressively about this.

Just watching.
So interesting, especially the science behind and his response to medication.

The thing with Rory is, he has learned to 'cope' and found his niche in comedy which I suppose his ADHD traits lend well to. So the question is what value will being medicated bring him?

However, a child going through great difficulty at school with short attention span and impulsivity etc and unsure of the future, medication may open more doors for them, if that makes any sense e.g Rory had said he had difficulty reading a book from start to finish.

Haven't watched it yet but plan to.

I was diagnosed with ADHD but I think it was a misdiagnosis and it was actually anxiety causing issues. (And still is)
