Like a lot of newspaper articles or reports, I am not sure that article has anything to say at all. It seems have a prejudice against the concept of ADHD. (A local conservative radio announcer regularily rants against people who imagine ADHD exists (as do all the famous (and not so famous) scientologists.) It makes the point that educators should make an effort to work/redirect/pay attention to a child's natural learning inclinations. And, it suggests that this society makes demands on people that could be different. Yes. I agree. But I don't really see what that has to do with anything. What is the point of the article?
