      I worry about a ridged definition of ADHD to characterize a spectrum disorder, with social and environmental factors, and resulting coping and not coping survival strategies, may alter and mask the observable physical and characteristics in individuals.

      It may lead to Missing the biological root causes and best solutions. Recognizing that ADHD individuals may focus on certain limited aspects of ADHD, and eliminate the situations from their lives entirely (avoidance), which may mask the correct diagnosis, and worse, may take away many possibilities for success and happiness, and proper treatment.

      I do agree with looking into the individuals thought processes. They are extremly important and too often and too quickly classified or grouped.
