Famous People with ADHD

As a parent of a child with ADHD you want to encourage your child and help him realize that his ADHD doesn't have to determine his future success. To help parents make this point, More4Kids has compiled a list of famous people who had/have ADHD.
"The simple fact that these people achieved what they have in their own fields has to make you wonder, is Attention Deficit Disorder really a disorder or a gift. There are researchers that have posed that very quandary. It is not uncommon for people that have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD to also be incredibly creative, and that helps them excel and succeed in what they want to do in life."
The list is by no means exhaustive, but there are enough familiar names on it to give both kids and parents a more positive outlook on ADHD. Read more at More4Kids.info.

"They Say I Have ADHD. I Say Life Sucks!"

This unusual title conveys the most basic feeling that many young people have who are diagnosed with ADHD. The book was written by Lisa-Ann Ray-Byers, and follows the main character - Nicholas - who's been diagnosed with ADHD.
"Ray-Byers, a speech-language pathologist, wrote the book to inspire empathy in parents, teachers, administrators, and even psychological and neurological specialists. She also strived to demonstrate the thoughts and feelings behind many of the behaviors exhibited by children who have ADHD and to put into words what most young children can not."
Ray-Byers not only has a son with ADHD, but was diagnosed with ADHD herself when she was a child. Most of the book's content is drawn from her and her son's own experiences. Read more online.
