ESSENCE (Early Symptomatic Syndromes Eliciting Neurodveleopmental Clinical Examinations) is an umbrella term that was launched by the author a few years ago. It covers all the early onset neurodevelopmental disorders that may present with/”as” ADHD, autism, learning and motor coordination problems of various types, and with a range of other psychiatric disorders/problem types. The introduction of the ESSENCE-mode of thinking about problems to do with deviations from normal child development, should not be taken as support for lumping rather than splitting, but for the order in which these two aspects of diagnosis is approached.
