i think the biggest problem we have had as a group

0:03

in convincing the general public about the seriousness of our childrens'

0:06

disorder

0:07

verses autism or schizophrenia

0:10

or the other disorders

0:11

is the very name itself is trivial

0:14

immediately steve go to starbucks good god

0:18

custom kathleen we got more series fish to fry you're in psychiatry

0:22

than the fact that you just can't pay attention

0:25

part of the reason that our disorder that the name of this disorder is so

0:29

often pilloried in the media

0:32

is because i think we must mean that

0:34

this is a developmental disorder of self-regulation

0:38

not of attention

0:39

to refer to a_t_t_'s inattention is to refer to autism as hand flapping and

0:44

speaking funny

0:46

they are the most obvious symptoms

0:47

of a failure to develop the ability to relate to others and special optics as

0:53

humans

0:54

and that is what what is it really is underneath

0:57

the rest of it is just the most superficial set of symptoms

1:01

so i would want my family to understand

1:04

the pro funded

1:06

of these deficits

1:08

because inattention

1:09

hardly captures

1:11

what is going wrong

1:12

in development

1:14

i would want parents to understand something that the vast majority of the

1:18

late population does not understand

1:20

self control is not

1:23

lauren

1:24

it is not the result of your upbringing and how good your parents were this is

1:29

one of the most profound insights

1:32

from our research on dvd

1:35

a_t_t_'s we will see a smart retainer or genetic disorder but then let's pursue

1:39

the implications if that is true and a_b_c_'s of self-regulation disorder

1:43

than self control is largely narrow genetic in origin

1:47

that has a

1:49

philosophically perfect one conclusion

1:51

the best majority of variation in the people sitting in this room in their

1:54

ability to manage their behavior

1:57

is not from how they were ratings

2:00

it is a part of who they are it is a part of the ordinary dramatic gifts

2:06

and that is very stunning indeed

2:11

that our capacity for regulating ourselves

2:14

is a narrow biological trait

2:17

not some socially learned phenomena

2:20

that you just happen to pick up

2:21

from your parents
