Are ADHD Kids More Creative?
Fugate, C. Matthew
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n2 p14-15 Feb 2016
Unfortunately, there are many students that feel "stupid" in classrooms all around the country. They know they are gifted, but their ADHD and co-occurring conditions can make them feel isolated and alone. This is hard not only for the children, but for the parents who may feel powerless in helping their child know how special he or she truly is. It is essential that parents understand they are the most important advocate that gifted children with ADHD have in their corner. This article discusses findings from the author's previous studies examining students with ADHD, and provides suggestions for how parents can help their children succeed.
