ADHD Benefits Children
Schools reward those who are compliant, attentive and methodical. But children with ADHD are the creative innovators like iPod inventor Steve Jobs; passionate, intuitive feelers such as Bono and Johnny Depp who thrive as performing artists; visionaries like Richard Branson whose energy, persistence and willingness to challenge the norm lead to breakthroughs in science and technology.
Kirk Martin, Founder of a leading educational organization, Celebrate!ADHD, asserts the following:
· Children with ADHD possess superior traits their peers do not possess.
· Society desperately needs the energy, creativity, imagination, vision, passion and persistence that only children with ADHD possess.
· Kids with ADHD don't need to be changed - Celebrate ADHD has witnessed an 85% reduction in use of Ritalin by working with a child's nature instead of against it.
· The best writers, directors, actors, musicians and inventors have ADHD - eradicate ADHD and you may as well shut down Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble and Best Buy.
History validates these assertions. Edison, Monet, Disney, Pasteur, Spielberg and countless world-changing trailblazers have shared the defining characteristics of ADHD.
“Rather than try to change our kids to be like everyone else, we need to equip them to use their gifts and talents to help others,” Martin says.
That means reaching and teaching children with ADHD differently. Kids with ADHD are experiential, hands-on doers. They prefer action to listening, experimenting to studying. Celebrate!ADHD is helping design the nation's first School of Creativity and Entrepreneurship, dedicated to cultivating each child's natural gifts, talents and passions.

ADHD Myths — What If There Really Isn’t Anything Wrong with ADHD Children?
February 6, 2006 (Washington, D.C.) - An ADHD diagnosis can often signal a lifetime of struggles for children. But consider the case of Robbie Raffino. Robbie used to rise every day like most eight-year-olds. He'd wipe the sleepiness from his eyes, throw on shorts and shirt that don't match and eat cereal while watching cartoons. But the innocence ended there. He'd swallow his Ritalin, hop on the school bus and enter
