When your child is diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a list of worries begins running through your head. How will other parents and kids react to my child? Will my child succeed at school and land a rewarding career?

ADHD is just one part of who your child is – a part that actually can be a great advantage. Rather than dwelling  on your child’s challenges, keep sight of your child’s many strengths and you and everyone around you may begin to see them through a new lens.
