The ADHD mind is unique. It regulates attention and emotions in different ways than a neurotypical brain would. It’s also terrifically creative, adventurous, and sensitive. ADHD is not a damaged or defective nervous system. It is a nervous system that works well using its own set of rules.
Despite ADHD’s association with learning disabilities, most people with an ADHD nervous system have significantly higher-than-average IQs. They also use that higher IQ in different ways than neurotypical people. By the time most people with the condition reach high school, they are able to tackle problems that stump everyone else, and can jump to solutions that no one else saw. This website and magazine provides a wealth of resources and information to help children, teens, young and older adults with ADHD.
