According to Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., and John J. Ratey, M.D., psychiatrists specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD describe the disorder in a very promising way because both of these Harvard University trained doctors have ADD.

It's there; we simply must notice it and encourage it.
