Been diagnosed with ADHD? Does the diagnosis fit? In other words, based on what you are told about ADHD, is that your experience? If so, are you familiar with sluggish cognitive tempo or its new name, cognitive disengagement syndrome (CDS)? In October 2014, we reported on the discovery of a new disorder. It seems many diagnosed with inattentive ADHD could actually have a different disorder called sluggish cognitive tempo. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD and attention coach Jeff Copper (http://www.digcoaching.com) interviews Joey Fredrick (https://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/service/c/adhd). Since our last review of the topic, things have progressed a bit. This episode will update our understanding of CDS, give evidence to validate this newly identified condition, and educate you about the differences between ADHD and CDS to help you better manage your condition if you might actually have something different from ADHD.
