It seems that ADHD is a catch all. It’s an umbrella and it’s easy to just say that must be it when there are other things that it could be, right?

Exactly, it’s easy to label someone as ADHD. If this person is hyperactive, let’s just call him/her ADHD, but you really don’t want to miss something else that’s going on and start treating for ADHD and miss something else. For kids, a lot of times we want to make sure it’s not a learning disability. Do they have problems with hearing or vision? If so, are we chasing ADHD when they really have some other problem?
