The first hyperactive children: the rise of ADHD in historical perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Who was the first hyperactive child? Some might argue that overactive, impulsive, and inattentive behavior has always been associated with childhood. Moreover, presented differently, these attributes can be seen as essential to raising children who are open-minded, curious about the world, eager to learn and experience new things, and willing to challenge convention.
