does anyone know of a neutral alternative name for "adhd" which doesn't pathologise people for their neurodiversity (i.e. no "disorder")?
(boosts welcome)

In German its called Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit or Hyperaktivitätstorung.

First translates to concentration deficiency, the latter one to hyperactive/activity.

Not sure if it is much better, but you certainly avoid the term adhd and this the immediate prejudices.

@wolf I'll often just say "attention deficit" for shorthand but... that implies only inattentive ADH(D) and still, "deficit".
