ADHD defense

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have noticed that many students where I work use the ADHD defense when they are rude to others by swearing or using slurs. Some are even aggressive. When I read the DSM criteria, it discusses impulsivity as more of calling out in class instead of raising your hand. I don't recall it ever saying that being rude or aggressive is part of ADHD.

How can I say to parents that ADHD is not related to aggressive or rude behavior? Those are issues, but I feel it shouldn't be blamed on ADHD. Or maybe I've been wrong?
