Abstract

This study examines the impact of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) stereotypes using audio-recorded interactions of a training session which provides practical solutions for young people when faced with negative stereotypes in their everyday lives. A discursive psychological approach is used drawing on methods from conversation analysis and membership categorization analysis. The study focuses on how the constructive three turn initiation-reply-evaluation sequence is used to make visible the young people’s ADHD knowledge. The way membership categorization is used to do and recognise descriptions of ADHD and how these descriptions are claimed or resisted by the young people. The study contributes to the area of research which looks at the everyday lived experiences of young people and ADHD with implications for practitioners to improve the way training/support sessions are managed and organized.
