CCD aka. "Concentration Deficit Disorder"

So just thought this might be good to put out there and start a new thread.

I realize this is not a legitimate disorder according to the "DSM" but I think it should be used moving forward being that SCT name really ****** me off and its offensive.

I feel like I'm stuck in the middle of ADHD and CCD .

Can we make this stick!!
Curious to what you all have to say!

Re: CCD aka. "Concentration Deficit Disorder"

The SCT label is not accepted and is not part of DSM despite Barkley's lobbying.


CCD is also not a recognised acronym.

I should probably let the person who uses them answer, but AFAIK SCT is for "Slow Cognitive Tempo," and OCD is "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder." The OP is proposing a new label of "Concentration Deficit Disorder," so I'm guessing he probably meant CDD?

If I could put in my 2 cents here, I'm leaning to the idea that our problem is less a "deficit" of attention, concentration, whatever, and more of a problem of "dysregulation" of identifying what needs our immediate attention while still monitoring the big picture, our internal state, what we were doing before we were interrupted, and important other environmental developments in the background. Speaking for myself, I either overfocus on something that may not really be in my best interest, or I dither back and forth between the background and the foreground making it hard to follow a clear agenda.

It's like having a monkey mind and a defective dashboard, rather than defective attention as such. Not that I see MM/DD ever making it into the DSM, either.

I think we can get too hung up on precise definitions- because whatever one we use somebody will feel uncomfortable with the label.

Also DSM does state that it is provisional in nature, and more of a basis for research than a definitive description.

The Swedish talk of "Deficits of Attention Motor Control and Perception", and to me that is a far better description as it unites the motor and cognitive aspects of the problem.

In the current setting I think it is maybe better to recognise that the broad phenotype of ADHD is a useful classification, on purely utilitarian grounds as it gives a clear indication that stimulants are both likely to be beneficial, and are legally prescribable.

Another thought- people get uncomfortable with psychiatric labels because they seem to be belittling us.
It is looking more and more that ADHD exists strictly at the subconscious / subcortical.


They do not really represent anything firm about ourselves.


We do form reactions to the way people treat us, and the way we treat other people as a result of our difficulties. Those reactions are much more close to consciousness and are something we can change, and bear responsibility for.

Re: CCD aka. "Concentration Deficit Disorder"

We all know that a certain part of the population doesn't believe that ADHD is a real diagnosis either. No matter what you call it, you're going to have those people. I know it's a real diagnosis and that treatment helps just because I've lived with it a long time. And even though I had this disorder for decades without knowing what it was, I always knew I was different from most people, that something just wasn't quite normal about me. And I still consider myself "different". I've come to the realization that I am okay with that.
