Having ADHD is not significantly different than having ex. Diabetes. One must learn special skills to look after either one. Both need special care and understanding of the respective disorders. The Diabetes Association helps people with Diabetes, we help people with ADHD.
We now know that people with ADHD can have successful lives providing they get the correct support and encouragment.
