Minds That think diffrently

For people with attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), completing the simplest tasks or making minor decisions can sometimes be quite challenging. You might not realize that your friends or coworkers are silently struggling to even perform the most basic tasks. 

For most people, the solution to a question or problem is usually a linear process, a direct route from Point A to Point B. For individuals with ADHD, it can be a more circuitous trek—starting in the middle, taking detours, or speeding back and forth. Ultimately, they arrive at the destination with a valid conclusion. The solutions could be the same, but every journey will be different. Simply put, ADHD minds think differently.

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting both children and adults that can manifest in various ways. Common symptoms can include the inability to focus, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, impaired cognitive processes, lack of executive function, sleeplessness, depression, and trouble with detail-oriented tasks as well as time management.
