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 trepidation and joy unseen but which I hope to bring to light.
