Re: Do people who have ADHD-Combined daydream?

Thanks. I looked back at DSM-III diagnostic criteria, and daydreaming wasn't in those, either.

The fact that both inattention and daydreaming were in the Conners Rating Scale does not imply that they mean the same thing. Daydreaming does not necessarily mean inattention, and inattention does not necessarily mean daydreaming. Daydreaming and inattention are related to each other in some cases, but the words are not synonyms.

ADHD (combined presentation) is diagnosed using the exact same criteria as ADHD (predominantly inattentive presentation), plus a set of symptoms for impulsivity/hyperactivity.

Do you think people with ADHD (combined presentation) would be any more or less likely to daydream excessively than people with the inattentive presentation? If so, why?
