ADHD As A Difference In Cognition, Not A Disorder: Stephen Tonti at TEDxCMU

I so like this TED talk from Stephen Tonti.  There are many great messages in this for every parent and teacher.  Those with ADHD:

  • can concentrate on things they want to
  • they are exceptionally talented
  • need teachers and parents need to understand their experience, from their point of view
  • realise that medication is not the answer.

Do take a look at Bridges to Success – how to Transform Learning Difficulties, for some great skills to help those with ADHD, whilst maintaining and developing their fabulous skills.

    This is one of my faves too. Just shows that AD(H)D folks are just “multi-passionate” 🙂

  2. Thanks for your comment Lisa, it is such a better perspective
