Creativity and ADHD

For a strength-based perspective on ADHD, check out the article "The Creative Gifts of ADHD." The article focuses on how many individuals with ADHD find that the way their brain works allows them to excel in certain areas, like creativity.

There has been a lot of research showing similarities between creative thinkers and those with ADHD - even within the brain with regards to specific brain networks and activity. The author of the article emphasizes an important point: to allow creativity to be fostered in a positive way, it's important to acknowledge and harness the way your ADHD brain works. His message matches our philosophy here at Springboard; having ADHD is not the end, nor something negative. Rather, it is a beginning that can hold many opportunities!
