I haven't read this thoroughly, but posting because what I did skim was interesting and thought I'd share: "How Childhood Trauma Could Be Mistaken for ADHD" by Rebecca Ruiz (http://www.printfriendly.com/print/?source=homepage&url=http%3A%2F%2Facestoohigh.com%2F2014%2F07%2F07% 2Fhow-childhood-trauma-could-be-mistaken-for-adhd%2F)

It does seem likely that ADHD children endure trauma as a result, I know my school experience was pure hell as a child...but perhaps that point is addressed.

Anyway, thought I'd share and hopefully I'll have time to read in full at some point... Little E isn't a big fan of giving me free time now that she's teething.

-ADHD as a result of unintentional trauma.
-unintentional trauma as a result of ADHD.

(In my experience)
