Both of my brothers are ADHD and me and my sisters may be borderline, though we've never been diagnosed with it. It's good to diagnose it, I think, because even if you don't medicate for it, you can discuss your child's learning patterns with their teachers. (For me, I was always getting in trouble in church and school, because I would draw during lessons, which would actually focus my mind on what the teacher was saying. But teachers would get the opposite idea and take away my pencil and paper, and reprimand me for not paying attention.....and as soon as they did that, my brain would wander off, not having anything to focus on.)
