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.
