My difficult child has diagnosis of depression and bipolar - all in question, with clear cycling lately. Now, when I look at these forms for adhd and the questions read "has child EVER.....", I'm thinking, what cycling child in an escalated mode has not done these things, which are basicly signs of being hyper (easily distracted, excessive talking, difficulty focusing, etc.) So, if these forms are answered honestly, wouldn't most kids, especially those with depression and/or bipolar, fit the criteria for adhd? Not that the label matters, but the medications and IEP are strongly effected by this. Any thoughts? Thanks!!
