Not sure about the ?: I am not sure you asked the question as intended as you inquired how adhd is different from adhd. You correctly identified that there appears to be an increase in this diagnosis. This problem , when correctly identified, sits on a neurodevelopmental spectrum with other disorders. One reason we may see more children with hyperactivity, poor focus and impulse control is increased use of electronics.
