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.

Book Offers Hope to ADHD Kids

"Dusty's Dilemma" is the story of a young boy who hears the label ADHD so much that he has a dream about it. In the dream, all of the kids in his classroom have ADD, and the teacher has a magical pair of glasses that allow her to see every child's future.
"'The goal with this book, [Author Drema] Hymon said, 'is to get kids to believe that no matter if you have ADD or ADHD, you can still learn.'"
Hymon's own son was diagnosed with ADD in grade school. Though his early years of school were tough, he went on to earn a 4.0 in his first year of college.

One of the characters in the book, Sammy, grows up to be a Harlem Globetrotter. The real-life Harlem Globetrotters team has read the book, loves it, and intends to give it their official endorsement. Read more online.
