The Positive Sides of ADHD

There are a lot of positive sides of ADHD, you just need to know how to find them. For example, things like stubbornness can be seen as tenaciousness, and distractibility can turn into the ability to multi-task. These are skills that are extremely useful, and are skills that potential employers look for. Not only potential employers, but potential business partners, employees, trainees and/or students of your child’s future career. That’s right, turning weaknesses into strengths are what create successful entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors, teachers and statesmen and women.

In the video below, SOAR Director John Willson talks about Finding Hidden Strengths and making perceived weaknesses, into something positive.
