An inability to focus, impulsiveness, misbehavior, frequent daydreaming, and a predisposal to addiction are frequently referenced traits of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). But what about the gifts of ADHD?
In the groundbreaking book Movers, Dreamers, and Risk Takers internationally-known ADHD coach Kevin Roberts takes a fresh approach to this much-written-about topic to help those with ADHD—their parents, teachers, and friends—to tap the hidden strengths and actual advantages inherent in the ADHD personality. He combines the latest research with personal stories, as well as insights born from his work with those with ADHD, showing readers how to get past the stigma of this condition to eventually turn what have been seen as “symptoms” into character strengths and creative ways to make life richer and more interesting for themselves and the people around them.
Join us as he discusses his book, as well as recent ADHD research.
