I can try to guess: As often times, stimulants are used to treat the impulsivity associated with adhd, for a child who continued to display impulsivity while receiving stimulants- i might see how that could be referred to in the way as phrased in your question. I am not sure i find it to be a particularly helpful description for a specific subset of patients. If you heard the doctor say it, i would ask about it.
