I completely agree, Mary. Unfortunately, many children are diagnosed with ADHD when it's really PTSD. Too often well-intentioned (but trauma-uninformed) evaluators misinterpret the child's symptoms as behavioral when the the true problem is environmental. I saw this all the time as a child therapist working with sexually abused children. Thanks again for spreading the word.

Thank you, Mary. I originally trained as a child therapist and worked with hundreds of traumatized children in the early years of my career as a psychotherapist. I no longer work with children but I see the effects of early trauma with my adult clients. The information shared in this video is so important. Thanks again.

Diane, thanks for your comment!  You are so welcome!  As you know, just being informed as to what is going on with kids by asking what happened to them vs. what is wrong with them, and responding with care and empathy vs. blaming and shaming them, can completely change the trajectory  of their lives!  Learning about ACEs science has certainly done that for me!
