Apparently they are finding that there is a connection between some kids that have "ADHD" and that it turns out once they fix the apnea issue it goes away (the ADHD). So basically they were misdiagnosed or mislabeled.

No he doesn't have an adhd diagnosis - but he has always been active kid.

I'm a special education teacher so I have a lot of experience in the area - just the apnea/adhd overlap thing was new to me.

Does that make sense.
