Was your child incorrectly diagnosed with ADHD? Was your child given an ADHD diagnosis only to later find out that he/she had a different learning disability?

If so, you are invited to participate in a research study that looking at how an incorrect diagnosis of ADHD affects our children. The study consists of answering a series of questions regarding your experience and will be conducted in an online format. All communication will be done via email, so you never have to give out your personal information and you are welcome to stop participating at any time during the duration of the study.

The results of this study will not be published, but will be used for an undergraduate research project. Your participation is greatly appreciated, so please respond to the this post for further information.

my son was diagnosed at 3.5 (now 15) but after 3yrs of hellish medications, I took him off the meds and checked for chemical sensitivities (which he had several of). Too many kids are being misdiagnosed because mental health doesn't want to believe that chemical sensitivity is a real thing and can sometimes come across symptom-wise LOOKING like ADHD.
