Movers, Dreamers and Risk Takers: Unlocking the Power of ADHD will be available through Hazelden Publishing in June 2012.
This book is my life’s work and represents my unique approach to being ADHD, and helping others who also struggle with this condition.
Learn to tap the skills and talents unique to those with ADHD and enhance your ability to succeed socially, academically, and in your career.
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 Movers, Dreamers, and Risk Takers, I take 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.
Those with ADHD have a predisposition to confronting the challenges of life and a deep preference for perceiving the world creatively. I help readers appreciate how the perceptual, interpersonal, and cognitive differences of “ADHDers” like these can be translated into unique skills and talents that can enhance their ability to be successful socially, academically, and in their careers.
I combine the latest research with personal stories, as well as insights born from my work with those with ADHD. I show you 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.
