Inattentive, dreamy… What if it was cognitive disconnection syndrome?

Daydreaming, dozing off in the middle of the day, thinking and acting slowly, lacking energy, having an anxious and/or depressed mood, withdrawing from others… Suffering from “slow cognitive tempo” (SCT), it’s a bit like: living at a snail’s pace. Is it just a idiosyncrasy (to each their own rhythm), a variant of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or other neurodevelopmental disorders? In Anglo-Saxon countries, which have been studying SCT for about fifteen years, the hypothesis of a specific syndrome is rather maintained. But what exactly is it?

Although ADHD is characterized by dysregulation of attention, motivational disturbances, fluctuating emotions, and/or motor agitation, it is indeed the attention disorder that predominates in SCT. explains Sébastien Henrard, neuropsychologist trainer (Lot), co-author Assessment of ADHD in children and adolescents (ed. Deboeck)
