ADHD affects 50 million children in US between the ages of 5-17;
it can be a burden for many who endure the diagnosis, as well as
their families, teachers and fellow students. A healthy clinical
perspective must be applied to this condition; and parents, teachers,
coaches, and fellow clinicians need to understand the complexity
of this condition.
I hope sharing my compelling story will help others who are
struggling; as well as provide key insight for parents, teachers,
friends and therapists affected by ADHD. Recognizing and treating
underlying ADHD which negatively affected me for years,was a
pivotal turning point in my life.
I want parents to know that their child with ADHD CAN grow up and
live a productive, successful, and happy life as an adult.
