Impulsive Creativity of the ADHD Artist

February 17, 2011 by  
Filed under Ourselves, Success!

When you have ADHD, you often see things other people miss. When the neuro-typical (“normal”) person sees a wooden table, the ADHD’r sees: the wood grain and imagines what part of the tree it came from the surface scratches and tries to guess what caused them the fact that the legs are not aligned with […]

A Love Letter

Filed under Ourselves

You know who you are. You are the reasons we keep on doing what we do. We move forward, hour after hour, taking peaceful solace in knowing you will be there at the end of the day. Without you, it would be like we had to continue on without the sun rising or setting. Things […]

A Great ADHD Hobby: Geocaching!

June 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Ourselves

We have recently discovered a great new way to spend time as a family. A family doctor, whose own child has ADHD, had recommended Geocaching, which we have come to understand as a little-discussed adventure/sport/game/hobby. I’m really not sure which of those fits best! Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt in which the participants use […]

We have stirred the pot in the area of education for ADHD kids. As a few had indicated, it certainly deserves further thought and discussion. We will revisit education for those dealing with ADHD in the coming weeks. For now, I’d like to expand the field of view for my vision for ADHD. Let’s move […]

A Vision for ADHD – Part II

May 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Education, Our Kids

As an ADHD adult, once again I find that impulsivity is riding shotgun. I have thrown out the idea that our schools, for a significant portion of society are due for radical change. But to be honest, I have not come close to fully fleshing out what they should be. It would be presumptuous on […]

A Vision for ADHD

April 29, 2009 by  
Filed under Education, Our Kids

I want to take ADHD to the world. Too often ADHD is met with a lack of understanding and a great deal of critical disbelief. Even those who care and have taken the time to become educated in this area often don’t seem to fully understand. We as a group need to get past the […]

New Section – The Gallery

Filed under In the News

ADHD may drag us down sometimes, but one of the very positive sides to having ADHD is that we tend to be creative people. Time and time again I hear about kids who are struggling in many aspects of their lives. Commonly, those same kids find wonderful, carefree self-expression through art. My kids love to […]

ADHD Accommodations and Support

April 21, 2009 by  
Filed under Ourselves

Recently, someone had asked me what my view was on the following, in regards to ADHD: – What should a person with ADHD reasonably expect from society in terms of accommodations and support? – To what extent should society make accommodations or allowances for ADHD disabilities? – How hard should a person work to make […]

An Impulsively Passionate Life with ADHD

March 17, 2009 by  
Filed under Ourselves, Success!

So far, my posts are showing a very dark side to ADHD. Time for a bit of a lift! The ADHD/Hunter type of person can also be a bit of fun. Impulsivity used properly can add quite a bit of spice to life. Just a few examples: There was the time my wife, our two […]
