Attention Deficit (AD/HD) and Executive Function (EF)

"Profound statements roll from his mouth, much too mature and intellectual for a child of his age. He remembers experiences you've long since forgotten and drags you to the window to watch the raindrops, falling like diamonds from the sky. On the good days being the parent of a spirited child is astounding, dumbfounding, wonderful, funny, interesting, and interspersed with moments of brilliance." Mary Sheedy Kurchinka, Raising Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic

Before referring a gifted child for ADD/ADHD evaluation Recommended by Sharon Lind

An extension of this trend is reflected in an increase in referrals for medical evaluation of gifted children as ADD/ADHD.

ADHD Primer for Parents Part I; Executive Functions NOT inattention as the defining trait Susan Crum, EducationNews.org
Stress has a curvilinear effect on executive functions.  Too little stress is not sufficiently challenging to invoke executive functions and too much overwhelms the system. This is why the complexity of a task much be tailored to the child's current capacity and not based on the general education curriculum.  It is also why parents walk a very fine line between setting expectations that are too low, and being perceived as nagging a child to do something they aren't equipped to do...

The U.S. Department of Education, in a written response to questions from the Learning Disabilities Association of North Carolina, stated that "...each child who is evaluated for a suspected learning disability must be measured against his or her own expected performance, and not against some arbitrary general standard."  Even an intellectually gifted student may be considered for eligibility for special education.
Diagnosis Questions by Betty Maxwell

The general lack of professional education regarding issues of giftedness can lead to wrong advice or even misdiagnosis."
