Shaping the Unseen – focusing on that which others cannot see – our hopes, dreams, fears, ambition, I will be talking about my journey as a professional in developing a very different understanding of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, while, at the same time, I gradually gained a realization that I have ADHD as well. My presentation will focus on developing a very different understanding of ADHD, currently viewed as a “disability,” hoping to encourage the audience to develop a very different understanding of those with ADHD including their very real gifts that have already contributed so much to our American culture – gifts including creativity and entrepreneurial talents – gifts which today remain trepidation, joy unseen, but which I hope to help bring into the light.
