Awareness ribbon color[edit]

Is it orange or purple, or are both used? The Orange ribbon page and the List of awareness ribbons both need independent references for this. Anyone know of a source for the ribbon color that is independent from the groups that use them? Amousey (they/them pronouns) (talk) 23:14, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Honestly, never heard of an awareness ribbon for ADHD. Probably best that way. – The Grid (talk) 01:30, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Update new edition book references[edit]

Would it be beneficial to update some of the references? I recognized some references for a few academic books have new editions. It may not change the information but it might've changed since this is a growing research area. Ehunter0711 (talk) 21:27, 1 October 2020 (UTC) Ehunter0711 15:23 1 October 2020 (MST)

7 types of ADD in future DSM-6?[edit]

There are more than 3 types of ADD (ADHD), for certain. It seems that there are 7 different types, including Overfocused ADD:

not "Inattentive", not necessarily Hyperactive nor Impulsive,  thus, the DSM-5 does not include that type of disorder

Overfocused ADD expresses by trouble shifting attention, by nto loops of negative thoughts, inflexibility, etc, but can hyper focus in any matter of interest, and might superb memory skills, thus, might be the best student at school Ronmar24 (talk) 20:47, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

@Ronmar24: I'm not sure what your point is. Are you suggesting an edit to the article? Edits require reliable sources. Since DSM-6 isn't even being written now, I don't think you're going to find any support for adding this to the article. If you're just chatting about your opinion, please note that article talk pages are only for discussion of improvements to the article. Sundayclose (talk) 21:00, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
