[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:

Libel: a written statement or graphic representation, especially in
published form, that damages a persons reputation. The act or crime of publishing
such a statement. Any defamatory or grossly unflattering statement.

Defame: to attack the good name or reputation; libel; slander.

Slander: a false statement that damages another's reputation.

Saying someone has ADHD, an always-fictition, never objectively verifiable
condition, which imparts, falsely, that the child/person has an abnormal
brain, a disease, a disabling disease, is to defame, slander, libel.
