What's Possible for Individuals with AD/HD?

Successful High Achievers with AD/HD - The Gift of Persistence Pays Off!

Gifted individuals come from various backgrounds: science, community activists, politics, law, medicine, entertainment, the arts, and sports. To name but a famous few: Ansel Adams, Anne Bancroft, Beethoven, Alexander Graham Bell, "Pappy" Boyington, Hans Christian Anderson, Lewis Carroll, Leonardo da Vinci, Walt Disney, Cher, Thomas Edison, "Magic" Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Robin Williams, Henry Winkler, and Stevie Wonder. Try using any of these role models to explain to your child how they are in the company of greatness, and share the same kind of "race car brain." It helps to have role models. As John J. Ratey, M.D., Edward Hallowell, M.D. so aptly point out, "'attention deficit disorder'" is a highly misleading description of an intriguing kind of mind." The list above would certainly indicate so.
