“Is ADHD Real?” How to Respond to Doubters with Tact and Facts
What Is ADHD? (and What Is It Not?)
As a Physical Therapist who has devoted the majority of her professional life to pediatrics, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is just one of many disorders that are near and dear to my heart. The month of October is National Physical Therapy Month; however, I recently learned that October is also ADHD Awareness Month.
ADDitude reminds us that "truth is power" and has provided a collection of ADHD facts to dispel myths, change minds, and illuminate ADD's superpowers. During the month of October, join me in taking time to recognize those in your life living with ADHD and not losing sight of their brilliance. Together lets not mistake their ADHD strengths for symptoms. Instead, lets refocus on its gifts; the unique traits and abilities that make individuals with ADHD more creative, spontaneous, caring, and energetic than anyone we know. From generosity and ingenuity to persistence and creativity; lets acknowledge that the sky's the limit for those living with ADHD!
