De ADHD-hype


A Documentary by Hetty Nietsch. There are serious concerns about the huge number of kids with ADHD. Their number is growing. First there were mainly boys who could not sit still that were diagnosed, now even girls that are dreamy get diagnosed with ADD. Massive amounts of children and adults are on pills. Some schools use medication as a threat to children that don't behave properly: take it or leave. In this documentary parents and children are talking about diagnosis, medication and dilemmas. And physicians discuss the scientific disagreements surrounding ADHD. Is it a hype or a unverifiable disorder as a response to our busy society that demands so much from us?
