Gifted and ADHD – What does it look like?

Gifted and ADHD – What does it look like?

“Sadly, sometimes “giftedness” and “ADD (ADHD)” seem to cancel each other out – in the eyes of the school and in the eyes of the student him or herself. (…) The cost for this hidden disorder – demoralization and chronic under-functioning.

But more importantly, ADD (ADHD) is a quality-of-life disorder that can affect all aspects of life. Untreated ADD (ADHD) can have a negative impact on self-esteem, on peer relations, and can lead to chronic sleep difficulties, and to chronic stress that may develop into anxiety and/or depression as life becomes increasingly challenging.”
