i haven't watched this but it's funny, I go back to the uk somewhat frequently and the majority of my friends have undiagnosed kids who, in the US, would have dx. 2 have undiagnosed, unmedicated adhd and one has a girl who is very very clearly on the spectrum as we now define it but i dont think it has occurred to her bc the prevalence of diagnoses there is so low. I dont know if it's good or a bad thing - i actually think in the case of the girl it's a good thing (she is not unhappy and is smart and has finally made friends through online dungeons and dragons) but i do think in the case of the undiagnosed adhd boys it is really messing with their academic progress and their self esteem.
