The youtube channel TeachersChannel were so kind as to post an insightful, objective, and above all interesting documentary on the condition of ADHD.

The documentary, titled ‘Living With ADHD’, was put together by beautifully put together by BBC Horizon, and examines the condition they describe as follows:

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most feared and misunderstood of all medical conditions. Despite over 200 scientific papers being published on this neurological condition every year, it remains stigmatised and controversial. Some doctors don’t even believe it exists.

Yet it is estimated that as many as 3-5% of the childhood population, and over one million adults in the UK are affected by ADHD. These people are often described as stupid, lazy, disorganised, wild, out of control or woozy on drugs. But the reality is altogether more complex, and deeply moving.

Along with discussing the condition itself and the specifics about it, the documentary follows the lives of the Hill and Fisher families, both of whom have one or more members with ADHD. It is a joy to watch and we highly recommend it.
