From “Is it ADHD or Child Traumatic Stress? A Guide for Clinicians”
“A number of researchers believe that symptoms of child traumatic stress could be mistaken for ADHD and that the risk of misdiagnosis is high. This is because there is an overlap between ADHD symptoms and the effects of experiencing trauma.
Young children who experience trauma may have symptoms of hyperactivity and disruptive
behavior that resemble ADHD.
Trauma can make children feel agitated, troubled, nervous, and on alert. These behaviors can be mistaken for hyperactivity.
What might seem like inattention in children who experience trauma might actually be symptoms of dissociation (feelings of unreality or being outside of one’s body) or the result of
avoidance of trauma reminders.
Among children who experience trauma, intrusive thoughts or memories of trauma (e.g., feeling like it is happening all over again) may lead to confused or agitated behavior which can resemble the impulsivity of ADHD.”
