Shaping the Unseen – focusing on that which others cannot see – our hopes, dreams, fears, ambition, I will be talking about my journey as a professional in developing a very different understanding of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, while, at the same time, I gradually gained a realization that I have ADHD as well. My presentation will be about developing a different understanding ADHD. Currently, ADHD is viewed as a disability. I want to encourage people to have a different view of ADHD. This includes the real gifts of ADHD that have contributed so much to American culture, such as creativity and entrepreneurial talent. These gifts are still a mystery to many, but I hope to bring them to light.
