Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder—that label is so negative. Just using the words “deficit” and “disorder” are charged with negativity and disapproval. But what if we could change the label? Maybe change it so it sounds more positive and inclusive? Are we stuck with the name? In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, host ADHD and attention coach Jeff Copper (https://digcoaching.com) and co-host Caroline Maguire (https://carolinemaguireauthor.com) talk about the benefits or disadvantages of changing the label and share insights around how it is what it is. If you are frustrated or curious by the ADD or ADHD label, this episode may have answers for you.
