agirlandherdogs will become famous soon enough
Abbreviations ... is there a list somewhere?

granted, I've had medical issues that I've lost a lot of my memory. I should know this stuff ... I hate it when I don't know something ...

NT
ADHD-C

etc etc ...

not everyone that reads the posts knows what they mean or frequents the boards enough to figure it out ...

can a list be made if there isn't one?

I hereby appoint you, agirlandherdogs, in my unofficial and unelected position of Chief Appointer of Appointees, to undertake the research to compile such a list and after which, to do so forthwith. This bold and vital enterprise will be funded by the (nonexistent) ADD Forums R&D Fund, and the esteemed and capable Professor ginniebean shall serve in the capacity of your research assistant and advisor.

If there are no further questions, I will be leaving work for the day to go play golf with unnamed members of Congress. Godspeed! :-D

Re: Abbreviations ... is there a list somewhere?

Here's a direct link to the list:
http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11111

It is not exhaustive, but it sure is long!

Here are a few, for starters:

NT = "neurotypical" (i.e., without neuro/psych disorders -- originally used by some members of the autistic spectrum community to mean "not autistic").

ADHD-PI = ADHD, with predominantly inattentive symptoms (and not enough impairing hyperactive-impulsive symptoms to "qualify" for combined type).

ADHD-PHI = ADHD, with predominantly hyperactive-impulsive symptoms (and not enough impairing inattentive symptoms to "qualify" for combined type -- most common in children who eventually "grow into" the combined type).

ADHD-C = ADHD, with significant presence of both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms that are impairing.

SCT = "sluggish cognitive tempo", a term coined by researchers/clinicians interested in individuals who a) may fit criteria for ADHD-PI but lack hyperactive-impulsive symptoms entirely, and/or b) people who (regardless of the presence of hyperactive-impulsive symptoms) experience "fogginess", confusion, slow processing speed, drowsiness, and other (varying, depending whom you ask) symptoms.
