WHAT IS ADHD?
ADHD is a term that has evolved over the decades, applied to people who have suffered all their lives, with difficulties in being organized, controlling impulses, and regulating their response to the world. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder has been referred to by some experts as a deficiency in Executive Function due to limited neurotransmitter function in the frontal cortex of the brain.
It is not a cognitive disorder, it is a performance disorder, ADHD brains know what to do, they don't always know how to do it, how to initiate task, or how to sustain attention. This is because their brains from birth are wired differently. They have incredible potentials and excel with unique problems that excite them and tap into their extraordinary creativity. They falter with less interesting task, like balancing a check book, which is often identified as part of the problems they face in their lives.
In my work, it is all about the "Hero's Journey" and how the "potentials" can overcome the "problems" we face in daily life.
