The article, “What We Know About ADHD Overdiagnosis” from Healthline takes a closer look at ADHD diagnosis and if there are issues with over diagnosis.  The article states,

“Researchers found that those close to the child may have unconscious beliefs or biases about how ADHD “looks.” This can lead to imbalanced diagnosis rates in males compared with females. This may explain why more male children receive an ADHD diagnosis than female children. The researchers also reported that clinicians tended to assess children or teens based strictly on numerical age, instead of how old they are when compared with their peers. This means that a child on the younger side of their grade in school, for example, might be diagnosed with ADHD, while their peers who behave similarly might not because they’re slightly older.”
