Sir Ken Robinson on the "fictitious epidemic" of ADHD

Last week I blogged about some new Canadian research on the prevalence of ADHD and also linked to a 2003 article of mine about the condition from OpenMind.

This animation of a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson shares my analysis of the reasons for the remarkable increase in the diagnosis of ADHD and has many wise and interesting things to say about education too.

It's worth putting up with the annoying squeak at the start...
