Acknowledgments
This article draws significantly on my concept paper published by the National Council of Teachers of English: Alternatives in understanding and educating attention deficit students: Toward a systemstheory, whole language perspective (Concept Paper No. 3, 1991). I wish to thank Michael Spooner and the editorial board of the NCTE for their conviction that this paper deserved wide circulation. I also wish to thank Curt Dudley-Marling of York University for critiquing an earlier version of the concept paper, and Carole Edelsky of Arizona State University for repeatedly insisting on the validity of the social criticisms of the concept of ADHD.
