The term Indigo Child was brought to light when a book written by Jan Tober and Lee Carol entitled “Indigo Children” was published in 1992. These people are said to be highly intuitive, sensitive, "other-worldly", mature, yet also often times misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD. They typically have little interest in structured learning, yet are highly curious. There are differing schools of thought determining the advent of Indigos, some believe the phenomena began in the early 70's while others think they themselves ushered in the ADD diagnosis to appease the medical community. Irregardless, we can no longer assume Indigo Children are only children, the word "children" is now a term used for classification of the culture.
